  Purpose
The question that prompted this study is the extent to which results from clinical trials can be translated into everyday practice (external validity). An observation period of about 10 years extends far beyond the duration of clinical trials. First and foremost are questions about tolerability and the efficacy of an antiretroviral combination treatment with Viramune and other antiretroviral partners. In particular, adverse events will be recorded and the therapeutic effect will be monitored via the course of viral load and improvement of the immune system, based on the CD4 cell count.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in log10 Viral Load From Baseline to Last Visit [ Time Frame: Baseline and last available visit. Duration of intake of Viramune ranges from 14 to 185 months. ]
    Baseline is defined as the last documentation before start of therapy with Viramune. The change from baseline reflects the last available visit viral load minus the baseline viral load.

  • Number of Participants With Viral Load <50 Copies/ml and >=50 Copies/ml at Last Visit [ Time Frame: Last available visit. Duration of intake of Viramune ranges from 14 to 185 months. ]
  • Change in Absolute CD4 Lymphocytes (CD4+) Cells From Baseline to Last Visit [ Time Frame: Baseline and last available visit. Duration of intake of Viramune ranges from 14 to 185 months. ]
    Baseline is defined as the last documentation before start of therapy with Viramune. The change from baseline reflects the last available number of CD4+ cells minus the baseline number of CD4+ cells.

  • Change in Absolute CD4 Lymphocytes (CD4+ Cells) From Baseline to Last Visit [ Time Frame: Baseline and last available visit. Duration of intake of Viramune ranges from 14 to 185 months. ]
    Baseline is defined as the last documentation before start of therapy with Viramune. The change from baseline reflects the last available number of CD4+ cells minus the baseline number of CD4+ cells.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Patients With Laboratory Abnormalities for Cholesterol During Study (Worst Grade) by Division of AIDS (DAIDS) Grade [ Time Frame: Up to 185 months ]
    Duration of intake of Viramune ranges from 14 to 185 months. The DAIDS Table for Grading the Severity of Adult and Pediatric Adverse Events ("DAIDS AE Grading Table") was used for grading the safety laboratory parameters. Grade 1 = mild, grade 2 = moderate, grade 3 = severe, grade 4 = potentially life-threatening.

  • Number of Patients With Laboratory Abnormalities for Low-density Lipoprotein (LDL) Cholesterol During Study (Worst Grade) by DAIDS Grade [ Time Frame: Up to 185 months ]
    Duration of intake of Viramune ranges from 14 to 185 months. The "DAIDS AE Grading Table" was used for grading the safety laboratory parameters. Grade 1 = mild, grade 2 = moderate, grade 3 = severe, grade 4 = potentially life-threatening.

  • Number of Patients With Laboratory Abnormalities for Triglycerides During Study (Worst Grade) by DAIDS Grade [ Time Frame: Up to 185 months ]
    Duration of intake of Viramune ranges from 14 to 185 months. The "DAIDS AE Grading Table" was used for grading the safety laboratory parameters. Grade 1 = mild, grade 2 = moderate, grade 3 = severe, grade 4 = potentially life-threatening.

  • Number of Patients With Laboratory Abnormalities for Blood Glucose During Study (Worst Grade) by DAIDS Grade [ Time Frame: Up to 185 months ]
    Duration of intake of Viramune ranges from 14 to 185 months. The "DAIDS AE Grading Table" was used for grading the safety laboratory parameters. Grade 1 = mild, grade 2 = moderate, grade 3 = severe, grade 4 = potentially life-threatening.

  • Number of Patients With Laboratory Abnormalities for Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) During Study (Worst Grade) by DAIDS Grade [ Time Frame: Up to 185 months ]
    Duration of intake of Viramune ranges from 14 to 185 months. The "DAIDS AE Grading Table" was used for grading the safety laboratory parameters. Grade 1 = mild, grade 2 = moderate, grade 3 = severe, grade 4 = potentially life-threatening.

  • Number of Patients With Laboratory Abnormalities for Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) During Study (Worst Grade) by DAIDS Grade [ Time Frame: Up to 185 months ]
    Duration of intake of Viramune ranges from 14 to 185 months. The "DAIDS AE Grading Table" was used for grading the safety laboratory parameters. Grade 1 = mild, grade 2 = moderate, grade 3 = severe, grade 4 = potentially life-threatening.

  • Number of Patients With Laboratory Abnormalities for Creatinine During Study (Worst Grade) by DAIDS Grade [ Time Frame: Up to 185 months ]
    Duration of intake of Viramune ranges from 14 to 185 months. The "DAIDS AE Grading Table" was used for grading the safety laboratory parameters. Grade 1 = mild, grade 2 = moderate, grade 3 = severe, grade 4 = potentially life-threatening.

  • Number of Patients With Laboratory Abnormalities for Hemoglobin During Study (Worst Grade) by DAIDS Grade [ Time Frame: Up to 185 months ]
    Duration of intake of Viramune ranges from 14 to 185 months. The "DAIDS AE Grading Table" was used for grading the safety laboratory parameters. Grade 1 = mild, grade 2 = moderate, grade 3 = severe, grade 4 = potentially life-threatening.

  • Duration of Intake of Viramune [ Time Frame: End of treatment, up to 185 months ]
    Duration of intake of Viramune

  • History of Therapy With Antiretroviral Medication [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    Participants with a history of therapy with antiretroviral medication.

  • Course of Absolute CD4+ Cell Count [ Time Frame: Baseline and last available visit. Duration of intake of Viramune ranges from 14 to 185 months ]
    The course of absolute CD4+ cell count is presented as the absolute CD4+ cell count at last visit.

  • Number of Participants With Drug Related Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to 185 months ]
    Number of participants with drug related Adverse Events (AEs)
