The Safety and Effectiveness of HBY 097 Used With or Without AZT in HIV-Infected Patients Who Have Mild or No Symptoms

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. Identifier: NCT00002357
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : August 31, 2001
Last Update Posted : June 24, 2005
Information provided by:
NIH AIDS Clinical Trials Information Service

Brief Summary:

To obtain preliminary information on the safety, tolerability, and antiretroviral activity of HBY 097 alone or in combination with zidovudine ( AZT ) versus AZT alone.

PER 1/19/96 AMENDMENT: AZT monotherapy arm was eliminated.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
HIV Infections Drug: HBY 097 Drug: Zidovudine Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Patients are randomized to receive one of three doses of HBY 097 with or without AZT or AZT alone for 12 weeks (AZT monotherapy arm eliminated per 1/19/96 amendment). All patients at a given dose level of HBY 097 must be enrolled and adequate safety data obtained before escalation in subsequent patients begins. Additional patients are entered at the optimal dose of HBY 097. Patients are evaluated weekly for the first 4 weeks and then every 2 weeks for the next 9 weeks.

PER AMENDMENT: Enrollment to the lowest dose cohort is completed.
