The purpose of this study is to determine if treatment with an anti-HIV drug containing ritonavir and Agenerase is safe and can lower the level of HIV in the blood in patients who have failed an anti-HIV drug treatment containing nelfinavir.
||Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||The Safety and Efficacy of a Ritonavir-Enhanced Agenerase Regimen as Salvage Therapy in HIV-Infected Individuals
HIV-infected patients will be treated with a ritonavir-enhanced Agenerase regimen.
|Ages Eligible for Study:
||18 Years and older
|Genders Eligible for Study:
