A Study of WF 10 IV Solution in Patients With Advanced HIV Disease
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The purpose of this study is to see if it is safe and effective to give WF 10 (TCDO) to patients with advanced HIV disease who cannot or will not take zidovudine, didanosine, zalcitabine, or stavudine. This study also examines how TCDO affects the levels of HIV in the body. TCDO is a solution delivered through a vein.
