Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to see if L-756423, an anti-HIV drug, is safe to give with indinavir and if it works well at lowering the level of HIV in the blood (viral load).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
HIV Infections Drug: L-756423 Drug: Indinavir sulfate Phase 2

Detailed Description:
All patients receive L-756423 plus indinavir plus two licensed nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs), at least one to which the patient is naive. Patients remain on the drug regimen for 12 weeks (with possible extension to 16 weeks). Patients are evaluated with physical examinations and laboratory tests for blood and urine at Weeks 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 12 and two weeks post study. Plasma viral RNA is measured at Weeks 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 12. CD4 cell counts are measured at Weeks 2,4,8, and 12.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Enrollment : 30 participants
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multicenter, Open-Label, Pilot Study to Evaluate the Safety and Activity of L-756423/Indinavir Sulfate, 800/400 Mg b.i.d. in Combination With Two nRTIs in HIV-Infected Patients Who Failed an Indinavir Containing Regimen
