Primary Outcome Measures:
  • There is no primary outcome measure. Only SAEs, AEs leading to discontinuation of the study drug, emtricitabine, regardless of seriousness/severity and AEs associated with skin discoloration (hyperpigmentation) will be collected [ Time Frame: 720 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 49
Study Start Date: December 2005
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2020 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: FTC

    FTC capsule 200mg qd

    FTC Oral Solution 6mg/kg qd

Detailed Description:

In addition to access to emtricitabine, the study will collect long-term safety information in subjects receiving emtricitabine in combination with other antiretroviral agents. Data collection during the rollover protocol for safety purposes will be limited to the reporting of adverse events (AEs) that (1) meet the criteria for a serious adverse event (SAE), (2) result in permanent discontinuation of the study drug, emtricitabine, and/or (3) are associated with skin discoloration (hyperpigmentation).
