Last verified: July 2014
History: No changes posted
Collecting data on maintaining anti-retroviral activity (quantitative HIV RNA determination) and immunological activity (CD4 cells) after switching from protease inhibitor or NNRTI to Nevirapine (Viramune®) and collecting of routinely observed laboratory data on lipids, and liver enzymes.

Condition Intervention
HIV Infections Drug: Viramune® tablets

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Long-term Observational Study in Patients Under Anti-retroviral Combination Therapy Who Were Switched From Protease Inhibitors or Other NNRTI to Viramune® Plus Two Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors (NRTI) for Reasons of Therapy. (Long-Term Switch)

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
HIV treatment centres and HIV out-patient facilities

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Adult male and female out-patients with HIV type 1 infection who have achieved a viral load below detection limit (50 copies/ml) for more than 6 months under a previous combination therapy with protease-inhibitors (PI) or non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTI)
  • Women can only be included, if a test has excluded pregnancy
  • Only women can be included, who use a reliable means of contraception during the observational study

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Known sensitivity to Viramune or one of its excipients
  • Clinically relevant changes in lab findings (e.g. increase in aspartate aminotransferase (AST) or alanine aminotransferase (ALT) by more than five-fold of upper limit normal)
  • Patient is not able to abstain from treatment with ketoconazole, oral contraceptives, and other medication CYP3A metabolism
  • For females:

    • Pregnancy
    • Breast-feeding
    • Insufficient or unreliable contraception
