Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to see if it is safe and effective to give MKC-442 plus at least two other anti-HIV drugs to patients who have never been treated with nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors but who have been treated with nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors and protease inhibitors. This study also determines how long a drug combination including MKC-442 is effective.

Inclusion Criteria

Concurrent Medication:


Based on medical history, medical condition, prior use of antiretroviral drugs, and genotypic analysis of the predominant strain of HIV-1 isolated from plasma, administration of at least 2 available antiviral agents by prescription may be given with MKC-422.

Patients must have:

- HIV infection with HIV-1 RNA greater than or equal to 2,000 by Roche Amplicor method, within 30 days of entry.

Prior Medication:


  • Prior nucleoside reverse transcriptase and protease inhibitors.
  • Cytotoxic chemotherapy more than 30 days prior to entry.

Exclusion Criteria

Co-existing Condition:

Patients with the following symptoms or conditions are excluded:

  • Malabsorption or severe chronic diarrhea within 30 days prior to entry, or inability to consume adequate oral intake because of chronic nausea, emesis, or abdominal or esophageal discomfort.
  • Inadequately controlled seizure disorder.
  • Acute and clinically significant medical event within 30 days of screening.
  • Any clinical or laboratory abnormality greater than Grade 3 toxicity, with the exception of the listed laboratory values.

Prior Medication:


  • Non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor therapy.
  • Any unapproved experimental antiretroviral therapy.

Prior Treatment:


  • Radiation therapy within 30 days of entry, except to a local lesion.
  • Transfusion of blood or blood products within 21 days of screening.

Risk Behavior:
