Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Quality of Life comparison for HIV patients that start monotherapy with lopinavir/ritonavir (LPV/r) tablets vs patients with triple therapy which would include any boosted protease inhibitor (PI). [ Time Frame: 24 weeks per patients ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Virologic efficacy assessment for HIV patients on monotherapy based on LPV/r tablet vs triple therapy which would include any protease inhibitor [ Time Frame: 24 weeks per patient ]
  • Immune response changes assessment for those HIV patients who start monotherapy with LPV/r tablets vs HIV patients on triple therapy which would include any protease inhibitor [ Time Frame: 24 weeks per patients ]
  • Patient satisfaction assessment for HIV patients that start monotherapy with LPV/r tablets vs triple therapy which would include any protease inhibitor [ Time Frame: 24 weeks per patient ]
  • Treatment adherence assessment for HIV patients who start on LPV/r monotherapy tablets vs triple therapy which include any protease inhibitor [ Time Frame: 24 weeks per patient ]
  • Tolerability and safety assessment for the HIV patients who start monotherapy treatment with LPV/r tablets vs triple therapy which would include any protease inhibitor [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]

Enrollment: 228
Study Start Date: January 2010
Study Completion Date: December 2011
Primary Completion Date: December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Triple therapy
The patients who would be allocated to this arm will continue with their triple therapy treatment, based on any protease inhibitor boosted with ritonavir
Drug: Triple therapy with ritonavir
The patients will continue to take their usual triple therapy, as established in the summary of product characteristics
Experimental: Monotherapy
Those patients allocated to this arm will start to take Kaletra (lopinavir200mg/ritonavir50mg)two tablets bid
Drug: Lopinavir and ritonavir
The patients will take Kaletra (lopinavir200mg/ritonavir50mg)two tablets bid

Detailed Description:
The Study will help to compare the Quality of Life for those HIV patients that are on monotherapy with LPV/r Vs. triple therapy with a boosted protease inhibitor.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients infected with HIV-1, documented with a positive HIV-1 antibodies test and/or positive PCR confirmed for HIV-1 RNA.
  • Patients on triple antiretroviral therapy with any boosted protease inhibitor.
  • Patients with an undetectable viral load, which will be defined as <50 viral RNA copies/mL within the last six months.
  • Men or women aged≥18.
  • For women with childbearing potential, negative urine pregnancy test during the Screening visit.
  • Patients who would have granted a written informed consent prior to any Study-specific screening procedure.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with a written proof of resistance in the accumulated genotype, which would lead to a sensibility loss to lopinavir/ritonavir, or, in case of genotype absence, a documented failure to a protease inhibitor therapy.
  • Patients with a CD4 cells nadir CD4 <100 cell/microL.
  • Patients who, for any reason, could not be treated with lopinavir/ritonavir.
  • Prior medical history of psychiatric disorders, such as depressive syndrome, schizophrenia or psychotic disease.
  • Known previous medical history of drug abuse/addiction or alcohol chronic consumption, which in the Investigator's opinion, would be incompatible with his/her Study participation.
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding women, or women of childbearing potential who do not use an appropriate contraceptive method, according to the Investigator's opinion.
  • Documented past(within four weeks prior to screening) or active current opportunistic infection.
  • Patients who, due to severe toxicities related to any of their current HAART compounds, there is a planned discontinuation or modification concerning any of the drugs from their triple therapy.
  • Patients for which, according to the Investigator, will have to change their HAART, regardless of the reason, within the next six months.
  • Renal disease with creatinine clearance <60 mL/min.
  • Concomitant use of Lopinavir/ritonavir contraindicated drugs, such as rifampicin, dihydroergotamine, ergotamine, methylergonovine, cisapride, hypericum perforatum, lovastatin, simvastatin, pimozide, midazolam and triazolam.
  • Concomitant use of nephrotoxic or immunosuppressor drugs.
  • Patients currently treated with systemic corticosteroids, interleukine-2 or chemotherapy.
  • Patients treated with other Investigative Medical Product.
  • Patients with acute hepatitis.
  • Any disease or condition that, according to the Investigator, would be incompatible with the patient's participation in the Study.
