Safety and Effectiveness of Giving Two Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors Alone or in Combination With 141W94 to HIV-Infected Children Who Have Never Received Protease Inhibitors
The purpose of this study is to see if it is safe and effective to add a new protease inhibitor (PI), 141W94, to an anti-HIV regimen that includes 2 nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs).
|Study Design:||Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Phase III Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of 141W94 Plus Current Nucleoside Therapy Versus Current Nucleoside Therapy Alone in Protease-Naive, HIV-Infected Children|
In this double-blind, placebo-controlled, pediatric study, 210 patients are randomized to receive 2 NRTIs plus either 141W94 or placebo. Enrollment of patients is sequential: patients 13 to 18 years of age are enrolled first, followed by children < 13 when the appropriate pediatric dose has been determined. Patients who are unable to swallow capsules will be accrued when a liquid formulation becomes available.
