Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to see if it is safe and effective to give 1592U89 to HIV-positive adults. This study also examines the influence previous anti-HIV treatment has on the effectiveness of 1592U89.

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.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A 1592U89 Open-Label Protocol for Adult Patients With HIV-1 Infection.
