To compare the antiviral efficacy of AZT, 3TC, and NVP combination, in two doses per day, to the association of TDF, 3TC, and NVP, once a day, in antiretroviral naive HIV-1-infected patients (plasma viral load below 400 copies/ml at 96 weeks).

Zidovudine / Lamivudine + Nevirapine Twice Daily, Versus Tenofovir + Lamivudine + Nevirapine Once Daily in ARV-Naive Patients
Multicenter, Randomized, Open-Label Trial, Assessing the Efficacy of Zidovudine, Lamivudine and Nevirapine Combination Administered Twice Daily, Versus the Association of Tenofovir, Lamivudine and Nevirapine, Once Daily, in Antiretroviral Naive HIV-1 Infected Patients
The study will compare the immuno-virological efficacy, and safety, of a once daily antiretroviral combination (tenofovir + lamivudine + nevirapine) versus a twice daily association (fixed dose combination of zidovudine/lamivudine + nevirapine) in ARV-Naive HIV-1 infected subjects, with CD4 cell count below 350/µL or below 15%, whatever the viral load. Pharmacological (nevirapine concentrations) and virologic data (resistance mutations in case of failure) will also be provided, as well as adherence rate and quality of life in respect of the treatment arms.
96-week antiviral efficacy of tenofovir + lamivudine + nevirapine, once daily, versus a reference antiretroviral treatment given twice daily (zidovudine/lamivudine + nevirapine)
Phase 3

Inclusion Criteria:

  • HIV-1 infection, confirmed by a western-blot assay, at least 6 months after primary infection
  • Age > or equal to 18 years of age
  • No prior antiretroviral treatment
  • Karnofsky superior to 60%
  • CD4 T cells < 350/µL (2 measures, with at least a 1-month interval) in women, study will be proposed when CD4 cell count is below 250/µL, as nevirapine liver toxicity increases (X10) when CD4 are > 250/µL
