|Official Title:||A Phase II, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study of the Safety and Antiviral Activity of the Addition of PMPA Prodrug to Combination Antiretroviral Regimens in Treatment-Experienced HIV-Infected Patients|
Prior to study entry patients are stratified according to HIV-1 RNA level, CD4 cell count, and number of antiretroviral drugs. PMPA Prodrug or placebo is added to current antiretroviral regimens, and is administered in one of three dosing regimens.
