  Purpose
To determine the MTD and dose-limiting toxicities of a regimen of therapeutic ganciclovir, antiretroviral therapy, and recombinant interleukin-2 (aldesleukin; Proleukin) as an immune adjuvant in HIV-seropositive patients. To investigate the effect of increasing doses of Proleukin on the time to progression of CMV retinitis in patients being treated with therapeutic ganciclovir and antiretroviral therapy. To evaluate the incidence and level of anti-IL-2 antibody formation to subcutaneously administered Proleukin in this patient population.
