Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to look at the safety and effectiveness of a pill called Trizivir that is a combination of three anti-HIV drugs (zidovudine, lamivudine, and abacavir). Zidovudine and lamivudine are often given combined in one pill (Combivir). In this study, Trizivir will be compared to Combivir plus abacavir.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
HIV Infections Drug: Abacavir sulfate, Lamivudine and Zidovudine Drug: Lamivudine/Zidovudine Drug: Abacavir sulfate Phase 3

Detailed Description:
Patients are randomized to receive either the triple combination tablet (Trizivir) or to receive Combivir plus abacavir as a separate tablet. Patients take their study medications for 24 weeks.
