A Study to Compare Two Different Anti-HIV Drug Regimens

Patrocinador(es) del estudio: National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)
Números de identificación: NCT00000924, ACTG 403
  • Concluido

Propósito del estudio

To evaluate combination treatment regimens consisting of didanosine (ddI) plus nelfinavir (NFV) plus ritonavir (RTV) or stavudine (d4T) plus nevirapine (NVP) plus NFV with respect to changes in plasma HIV-1 RNA levels. To evaluate the safety and tolerance of ddI/NFV/RTV and d4T/NVP/NFV. To evaluate individual pharmacokinetics and drug interactions in the first 8 patients in the ddI/NFV/RTV treatment arm.

Fase 2

Detalles del estudio

The use of combination therapy with 2 or more antiretroviral agents has been strongly supported by recent studies in both children and adults. However, as of yet, few combinations of antiretrovirals have been studied in large cohorts of stable HIV-1 infected, antiretroviral-experienced children. Evidence suggests that viral suppression may be more difficult to achieve in children. Therefore, it is important to develop new drug combinations which can maximally suppress plasma HIV-1 RNA concentrations in children.Patients are stratified by prior antiretroviral treatment (zidovudine [ZDV]/lamivudine [3TC] versus d4T/other treatment) and by age (under 24 months versus 24 months and older). Patients are then randomized to 1 of 4 treatment groups. Arm A1: ddI/NFV/RTV (for prior ZDV/3TC-treated patients). Arm A2: ddI/NFV/RTV (for prior d4T/other-treated patients). Arm B1: d4T/NFV/NVP (for prior ZDV/3TC-treated patients). Arm B2: d4T/NFV/NVP (for prior d4T/other-treated patients). Treatment is administered for 48 weeks. At Weeks 2, 4, and then every 4 weeks thereafter, patients undergo physical examinations, and blood samples are drawn to measure viral load. [AS PER AMENDMENT 4/27/00: Patients in Arms A1 and A2 may continue to receive medication for an additional 24 weeks. While on the treatment extension, patients must continue their current schedule for study drug administration and completion of study visits. Patients in Arms A1 and A2 who have reached Week 44 participate in an enteric-coated ddI pharmacokinetic study as part of this 24-week extension. Patients who were enrolled in Arms A1 or A2 and who were taken off study after reaching Week 48 may be re-entered onto the study at Week 52 regardless of the number of weeks they have been off study.]

Criterios de exclusión

    Patients will not be eligible for this study if they: Have an active opportunistic and/or serious bacterial infection. Have been diagnosed with a malignancy. Have received prior treatment with certain antiretroviral medications. Are pregnant or breast-feeding.
