A Study on the Safety and Effectiveness of Twice-Daily Nelfinavir Plus Twice-Daily Indinavir Plus Efavirenz in HIV-Positive Patients Who Have Never Taken Non-Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors (NNRTIs) or Protease Inhibitors
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Indinavir is usually taken three times a day. The purpose of this study is to see if it is safe and effective to take indinavir only twice a day plus nelfinavir (also taken twice a day) and efavirenz (taken once a day).
Patients receive a treatment regimen consisting of nelfinavir, indinavir, and efavirenz for 48 weeks. During the study, patients are evaluated for changes from baseline in plasma HIV-1 RNA levels and lymphocyte subsets and for development of adverse events and toxicities. After Week 48, patients with documented virologic response are eligible to continue receiving study treatments and to attend scheduled follow-up visits. Patients who experience virologic failure are discontinued from the study.
A Phase II, 48-Week, Open-Label Study Designed to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of a Simplified Dosing Regimen of Viracept (Nelfinavir Mesylate) 1250 Mg BID, Crixivan (Indinavir Sulfate) 1200mg q12h, and Sustiva (Efavirenz; DMP-266) 600 Mg q24h for the Treatment of HIV-1 Infection in Non-Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitor and Protease Inhibitor Naive Patients
