  • Previously intolerant to didanosine (ddI) evidenced by peripheral neuropathy or seizures or pancreatitis or gastrointestinal toxicity or hematologic toxicity.
  • Diseases or conditions listed under Patient Exclusion Co-existing Conditions.

Prior Medication:

Excluded:

  • Zidovudine (AZT) for > 120 days.
  • Dideoxycytidine (ddC).
