Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of 2 anti-HIV drug combinations in HIV-infected patients. Both combinations will include nevirapine (NVP), 2 nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs), and at least 1 protease inhibitor (PI). One combination will include a new protease inhibitor, ABT-378, combined in a capsule with ritonavir (RTV).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
HIV Infections Drug: Lopinavir/Ritonavir Drug: Nevirapine Phase 3

Detailed Description:

Patients receive 1 of the following:

  1. ABT-378/RTV plus NVP plus 2 NRTIs; or
  2. Investigator-selected PI(s) plus NVP plus 2 NRTIs.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Enrollment : 300 participants
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Open-Label, Phase III Study of ABT-378/Ritonavir in Combination With Nevirapine and Two Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors (NRTIs) vs. Investigator Selected Protease Inhibitor(s) in Combination With Nevirapine and Two NRTIs in Antiretroviral-Experienced HIV-Infected Subjects
