Brief Summary:
To assess the safety, tolerance, and steady-state pharmacokinetics of multiple oral doses of 935U83 administered to patients with HIV infection. To obtain preliminary evidence of antiretroviral activity of 935U83. To prospectively evaluate the emergence of in vitro drug resistance. To determine the effects of 935U83 dosing on CD4+ cell counts.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
HIV Infections Drug: Raluridine Phase 1

Detailed Description:
Patients (10 per dose level) are randomized to receive 1 of 4 doses of 935U83 every 8 hours for 12 weeks. Five patients at each dose level must complete 4 weeks of treatment without serious toxicity before subsequent patients are entered at the next higher dose. If lack of antiretroviral effect or unacceptable toxicity is demonstrated at a particular dose level, the dose regimens may be adjusted.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Enrollment : 40 participants
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I Trial to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerance, and Pharmacokinetics of 935U83 After Multiple Dosing in Patients With HIV Infection
