Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine if treatment with an anti-HIV drug containing ritonavir and Agenerase is safe and can lower the level of HIV in the blood in patients who have failed an anti-HIV drug treatment containing nelfinavir.

Detailed Description:
HIV-infected patients will be treated with a ritonavir-enhanced Agenerase regimen.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
