Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Virologic response defined as viral load reduction of >/= 1 log [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess proportion of patients with HIV-1 viral load < 48 copies [ Time Frame: 48 weks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assess time to loss of virologic response [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assess development of resistance mutations in patients who develop rebound [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Compare serum lipid profile changes [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assess safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Assess degree of immune reconstitution [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 25
Study Start Date: December 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: lopinavir/ritonavir plus maraviroc
    lopinavir/ritonavir 400/100 mg bid plus maraviroc 150 mg bid
    Other Names:
    • Kaletra
    • lopinavir
    • Selzentry
Detailed Description:

As long-term toxicity to many of the nucleoside medications have become known, interest has increased in treatment regimens that do not use these medications. This study is to assess the response of one such "nucleoside-sparing" therapy in patients who are showing failure to their initial nucleoside-containing treatment regimen.
