Brief Summary:
The metabolic effects of T-20 are not completely known, since the drug is used in combination with other antiretroviral agents. A short-term study in healthy volunteers, with a double-blind crossover design vs. placebo will illustrate if there may be some direct metabolic effects without the influence of HIV infection and the concurrent use of other drugs.
