ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00025727
Verified June 2002 by NIH AIDS Clinical Trials Information Service. Recruitment status was: Active, not recruiting
The purpose of this study is to test 2 different dosing regimens of GW433908/ritonavir (RTV) versus lopinavir (LPV)/RTV when each is given with 2 active reverse transcriptase inhibitors (RTIs), in patients who have taken anti-HIV drugs without success.
Patients will receive 2 dosing regimens of GW433908/RTV or LPV/RTV, in combination with 2 active RTIs, after failing their first or second protease inhibitor-containing regimen. Patients are required to be on therapy at time of screening and must remain on this therapy until Day 1.
A Phase III, Randomized, Multicenter, Parallel Group, Open-Label, Three Arm Study to Compare the Efficacy and Safety of Two Dosing Regimens of GW433908/Ritonavir (700mg/100mg Twice Daily or 1400mg/200mg Once Daily) Versus Lopinavir/Ritonavir (400mg/100mg Twice Daily) for 48 Weeks in Protease Inhibitor Experienced HIV-Infected Adults Experiencing Virological Failure
