Phase I/II Study of the Tolerance and Efficacy of Combined Use of Didanosine (2',3'-Dideoxyinosine; ddI) and Lentinan in HIV-Positive Patients
Phase I/II Study of the Tolerance and Efficacy of Combined Use of Didanosine (2',3'-Dideoxyinosine; ddI) and Lentinan in HIV-Positive Patients

To determine the tolerance and side effects of a combination of lentinan and didanosine (ddI) compared with ddI alone. To determine whether the combination of lentinan and ddI produces a significant immunorestorative effect within the study observation period (6-12 months) as measured by an increase in one or more of the following: neutrophil count and activity, T-cell subsets, and a decrease in p24 antigen.

Patients are randomized to receive either lentinan (40 patients) or placebo (10 patients) in combination with ddI for at least 26 weeks; those tolerating their dose may be offered continuation of therapy for an additional 26 weeks.
