Last verified: October 2006
The study analyzes the virological response in plasma and non-plasma compartments, as well as the degree and kinetics of immune reconstitution in 70 treatment-naive patients with CD4 < 100/mm3, when they receive treatment with two nucleoside analogs (NRTI) plus one protease inhibitor (PI) compared with 2 NRTI plus one non-nucleoside (NNRTI).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of patients with VL below 20 copies/ml in plasma at 12 and 24 months.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunophenotypic response at 12 and 24 months (CD4:CD8 quotient,levels of naive
  • CD4 cells (CD45RA+CD45RO-) and memory cells (CD45RA-CD45RO+)
