Patients with the following prior conditions are excluded:

  • Evidence of active opportunistic infections, or unexplained temperature greater than or equal to 38.5 Celsius for 7 consecutive days within 30 days prior to screening visit.
  • Chronic diarrhea (defined as greater than 3 liquid stools per day which persists for 15 days) within 30 days prior to screening visit.
  • Diagnosis of hemophilia or other clotting disorders.

Prior Medication:


- Prior treatment with an HIV vaccine.

Prior Treatment:
