Reporting Groups
Arm A Oral tenofovir/emcitribine (TDF/FTC) and lopinavir/ritonavir(LPV/RTV) for 12 weeks followed by treatment interruption if CD4 count is 450 mm^3 or higher. When CD4 count is less than 350 mm^3 on two separate, consecutive measurements during treatment interruption, therapy will be resumed.
Arm B Antiretroviral therapy (ART) will not be initiated until AIDS-defining illness occurs or if CD4 is confirmed at less than 350 mm^3 at two separate, consecutive measurements
Total Total of all reporting groups
