|Study Design:||Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||An International, Double Blind, Randomized, Phase III Study to Evaluate the Tolerance, Safety, and Effectiveness of Viramune (Nevirapine) in Preventing Clinical AIDS Progression Events or Death When Used in Combination With Lamivudine (3TC) and Stable (>= 4 Weeks) Background Nucleoside Therapy|
Eligible patients will be randomized to treatment with either 1) open-label 3TC twice daily plus Viramune once daily for 2 weeks and then with Viramune twice daily; or 2) open label 3TC twice daily plus Viramune placebo once daily for 2 weeks and then twice daily Viramune. Patients will start Viramune and 3TC on study day 0.
