A Phase IIIB Open-Label, Comparative Study to Evaluate Saquinavir Soft Gel Capsule (SGC) Treatment in Combination With Other Antiretrovirals in HIV-1 Infected Antiretroviral-Naive Patients
To determine the proportion of patients whose plasma HIV-1 RNA level falls below the level of detection (< 400 copies/ml) at week 16 and 24 of study therapy. To determine the absolute change in plasma HIV-1 RNA and in absolute CD4 cell count during the 24 weeks of study treatment. To collect safety data on the treatment regimens. To determine the percentage of patients without SQV soft gel capsules resistance-associated mutations at week 24.
Drug: Nelfinavir mesylate
Drug: Delavirdine mesylate
|Study Design:||Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase IIIB Open-Label, Comparative Study to Evaluate Saquinavir Soft Gel Capsule (SGC) Treatment in Combination With Other Antiretrovirals in HIV-1 Infected Antiretroviral-Naive Patients|
Patients are randomized to receive 1 of 3 study regimens: Group A - Saquinavir (SQV) soft gel capsules (sgc) plus 2 reverse transcriptase inhibitors (RTIs), Group B - SQV sgc plus delavirdine plus RTI, and Group C - SQV sgc plus nelfinavir plus RTI (or SQV sgc plus ritonavir plus 2 RTIs).
