Study Description
Brief Summary:
This study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of RAL-based regimen in treatment-experienced patients with resistant HIV infection

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment

Detailed Description:
In our study, both efficacy and safety of raltegravir(RAL)-based therapy will be assessed. 300 treatment-experienced patients with drug-resistant HIV will be randomized to two arms (2:1). Group A (n=200) will be assigned with RAL-based regimen (RAL+TDF+LPV/r).Group B (n=100) will be assigned with current second-line regimen in China (3TC+TDF+LPV/r). Both virological and immunological profiles and responses at baseline and at week 4, 8, 12, 24, 36, and 48 will be evaluated. This study will be the first large-scale, multicenter, randomized, prospective RAL-based therapy study in China for HIV/AIDs patients. The result will provide proves for further practical antiviral therapy for China or other resource-limiting countries.
