Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Subjects were recruited from an ongoing cohort study in Kampala, Uganda. The first subject was recruited in Feb 2006.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
Participants received a medical and laboratory examination before assignment. Subjects were excluded if they had active tuberculosis or were anemic. 22 participants were recruited; 22 were screened,2 were excluded (1 did not meet inclusion criteria and 1 refused participation).

Reporting Groups
Generic (Triomune) to Brand (Zerit/Epivir/Viramune) Started with generic formulation (Triomune) then switched to brand formulation (Zerit/Epivir/Viramune).
Brand (Zerit/Epivir/Viramune) to Generic (Triomune) started with brand formulation(Zerit/Epivir/Viramune) then switched to generic formulation (Triomune)

  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Stavudine (40mg) was used whereas currently it is Stavudine(30mg) that is recommended for usage. So our results may not be applicable to patients on Stavudine 30mg.
