Phase I Study of Safety, Tolerability, and Pharmacokinetics of Viracept in HIV-1 Infected Children and Exposed Infants
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Phase I Study of Safety, Tolerability, and Pharmacokinetics of Viracept in HIV-1 Infected Children and Exposed Infants|
This is a study of the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of a Viracept pediatric powder formulation with milk or formula. First a single dose will be administered. After the patient population is divided into 4 groups by age, an optimal dose will be determined for each group. This optimal dose will be given 3 times a day for a 6 week primary observation period, plus an optional 6 month extension.
NOTE: During the single dose portion of this study, patients may be untreated or may continue treatment with their current nucleoside antiretroviral therapy. During multiple dose administration of Viracept, antiretroviral therapy will be intensified by either adding or modifying therapy. Antiretroviral therapies will be limited to those currently licensed including zidovudine, lamivudine, stavudine, didanosine or zalcitabine.
