Further study details as provided by NIH AIDS Clinical Trials Information Service:

Detailed Description:
Patients receive open-label 1592U89 administered orally in combination with at least one other antiretroviral agent that the patient has not previously received.

Ages Eligible for Study:   13 Years and older   (Child, Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria

Concurrent Medication:


Erythropoietin, G-CSF and GM-CSF.

Patients must have:

  • CD4+ cell count < 100 cells/mm3.
  • HIV-1 RNA > 30,000 copies/ml.
  • Signed, informed consent from parent or legal guardian for patient under 18 years of age.

Exclusion Criteria

Co-existing Condition:

Patients with the following conditions or symptoms are excluded:

  • Renal failure requiring dialysis.
  • Hepatic failure evident by grade 3/4 hyperbilirubinemia and AST 5 times the upper limit of normal.
  • Documented hypersensitivity to 1592U89.
  • Serious medical conditions, such as diabetes, congestive heart failure, cardiomyopathy, or other cardiac dysfunction, that would compromise the safety of the patient.
  • Participation in or ability to participate in an enrolling study of 1592U89.


At least 2 nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI) and one protease inhibitor (or intolerance to one protease inhibitor and one NRTI due to trying at least 2 different regimens with at least one protease inhibitor).

Alcohol or illicit drug use that may interfere with the patient's compliance.
