  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to investigate the possibility of an association between changes in neurocognitive function, as measured by a computerised test battery, and the use of two different highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) regimens in treatment naïve HIV-1 infected subjects commencing antiretroviral therapy.

Condition Intervention Phase
HIV Infections Drug: nevirapine Drug: atazanavir/ritonavir Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomised Prospective Study Assessing Changes in Neurocognitive Function, Using a Computerised Test Battery, in Treatment Naïve HIV-1 Positive Subjects Commencing Two Different Antiretroviral Regimens
