History of Changes
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of immediate versus deferred indinavir
(IDV) in addition to background therapy on disease progression or death in patients with CD4+
cell counts between 200 and 500 cells/mm3 and plasma HIV RNA levels >= 10,000 copies/ml.
This study aims to examine two management strategies, immediate versus deferred IDV therapy, for their clinical effects in the context of background antiretroviral (AR) therapy, given according to current clinical practice. There is an urgent need to identify the optimal use of IDV in patient management, since clinical endpoint studies have not been completed in the United States. Since there is little information about the long term durability of clinical effects, and even less information about the timing of the initiation of protease inhibitor therapy, exploring the disease progression and survival impact of immediate versus delayed use of IDV will yield important information to guide clinical decision making for this group of patients.
Drug : Indinavir sulfate

This study aims to examine two management strategies, immediate versus deferred IDV therapy,
for their clinical effects in the context of background antiretroviral (AR) therapy, given
according to current clinical practice. There is an urgent need to identify the optimal use
of IDV in patient management, since clinical endpoint studies have not been completed in the
United States. Since there is little information about the long term durability of clinical
effects, and even less information about the timing of the initiation of protease inhibitor
therapy, exploring the disease progression and survival impact of immediate versus delayed
use of IDV will yield important information to guide clinical decision making for this group
Prior to randomization the patient and clinician will determine whether the background therapy will be zidovudine (ZDV) plus lamivudine (3TC) or other background antiretroviral therapy (OBAT). Patients will then be randomized to IDV or matching placebo. AS PER AMENDMENT 06/27/97: The protocol was closed as of 03/25/97, and all patients have been unblinded to their assigned treatment. Patients still on study medication are eligible for the protocol extension. Patients who were randomized to immediate IDV may continue on therapy for up to an additional 4 months. All study therapy, both for those on immediate or delayed therapy, must be discontinued on 10/24/97.
