Information provided by:
NIH AIDS Clinical Trials Information Service
First received: November 2, 1999
Last updated: June 23, 2005
Last verified: August 1997
To demonstrate a dosage regimen for intravenous itraconazole that produces a plasma concentration range comparable to that obtained after currently used oral dosages of itraconazole oral solution; and to obtain preliminary safety data in patients with advanced HIV disease.
||Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics Study
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||Pharmacokinetics Study of Intravenous Itraconazole Followed by Oral Dosing at 200 Mg Twice Daily in Patients With Advanced HIV Infection
Patients will receive intravenous itraconazole solution twice daily for 2 days and then once daily for five additional days. Patients then randomized to receive twice-daily or once-daily itraconazole oral solution for an additional 28 days.
|Ages Eligible for Study:
||18 Years and older
