Safety and Effectiveness of Giving Adefovir Dipivoxil Plus Abacavir Plus Efavirenz Plus Amprenavir to HIV-Infected Patients Who Have Failed to Respond to Previous Protease Inhibitor Treatment
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.
The purpose of this study is to see if it is safe and effective to give adefovir dipivoxil plus abacavir (ABC) plus efavirenz (EFV) plus amprenavir (APV) to HIV-infected patients who have failed to respond to previous treatment with protease inhibitors (PIs).
Patients receive a treatment regimen of adefovir dipivoxil, abacavir, efavirenz, and amprenavir for 24 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. Patients who experience virologic failure are discontinued from the study. After Week 24, patients with documented virologic response are eligible to continue receiving the study treatment and to attend scheduled follow-up visits.
A Phase II, 24-Week, Open-Label Study Designed to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of Novel Quadruple-Combination Therapy With Preveon (Adefovir Dipivoxil; Bis-POM PMEA), Abacavir (1592U89), Sustiva (Efavirenz; DMP-266), and Amprenavir (141W94) for the Treatment of HIV-1 Infection in Patients Who Have Failed Previous Protease Inhibitor Treatment
