Phase III Multicenter, Open-Label, Randomized Trial of Induction Versus Induction Plus Maintenance Foscarnet ( Foscavir ) Therapy for Gastrointestinal CMV Disease
Phase III Multicenter, Open-Label, Randomized Trial of Induction Versus Induction Plus Maintenance Foscarnet ( Foscavir ) Therapy for Gastrointestinal CMV Disease

PRIMARY: To compare the frequency of and time to relapse of Cytomegalovirus (CMV) gastrointestinal disease following foscarnet induction therapy only versus induction plus maintenance therapy.

SECONDARY: To determine frequency of and time to recurrence of gastrointestinal symptoms, response rate of pathological lesions, and incidence of nongastrointestinal CMV disease in this patient population.

Patients receive intravenous foscarnet either as induction only for 4 weeks or as induction for 4 weeks followed by maintenance for 22 weeks. All patients are followed for 26 weeks or until relapse.
