Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new protease inhibitor known as BMS-232632. This drug will be given in combination with 2 other anti-HIV drugs (stavudine and didanosine). The effectiveness of BMS-232632 against HIV infection will be compared to that of nelfinavir, a protease inhibitor that is already commonly prescribed.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
HIV Infections Drug: Atazanavir Drug: Nelfinavir mesylate Drug: Stavudine Drug: Didanosine Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Patients are randomized to receive one of two drug regimens: BMS-232632, ddI, and d4T or NFV, ddI, and d4T. Three different doses of BMS-232632 are used in this study. Randomization is stratified for HIV RNA level (less than 30,000 copies/ml versus 30,000 or greater copies/ml). Patients remain on their drug regimen for 48 weeks.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Evaluation of the Safety and Antiviral Efficacy of a Novel HIV-1 Protease Inhibitor, BMS-232632, Alone and in Combination With d4T and ddI as Compared to a Reference Combination Regimen
Study Start Date : March 1999
Actual Primary Completion Date : December 2001
Actual Study Completion Date : December 2001
