This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
NIH AIDS Clinical Trials Information Service Identifier:
First received: November 2, 1999
Last updated: June 23, 2005
Last verified: June 1999
The purpose of this study is to see if it is safe and effective to add a new protease inhibitor (PI), 141W94, to an anti-HIV regimen that includes 2 nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs).

Condition Intervention Phase
HIV Infections Drug: Amprenavir Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Phase III Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of 141W94 Plus Current Nucleoside Therapy Versus Current Nucleoside Therapy Alone in Protease-Naive, HIV-Infected Children

Estimated Enrollment: 210
Detailed Description:
In this double-blind, placebo-controlled, pediatric study, 210 patients are randomized to receive 2 NRTIs plus either 141W94 or placebo. Enrollment of patients is sequential: patients 13 to 18 years of age are enrolled first, followed by children < 13 when the appropriate pediatric dose has been determined. Patients who are unable to swallow capsules will be accrued when a liquid formulation becomes available.

Ages Eligible for Study:   6 Months to 18 Years   (Child, Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
