  Purpose

This study will assess the safety and efficacy of once-daily administration of F uzeon compared with twice-daily administration in HIV-1 infected patients who ha ve received prior treatment. Patients will also receive an optimized treatment c onsisting of antiretroviral (ARV) therapy as determined by the treating physicia n. The anticipated time on study treatment is 3-12 months, and the target sample size is 100-500 individuals.
