History of Changes
To assess the relative efficacy of oral versus intravenous hydration during foscarnet sodium (Foscavir) induction therapy, as determined by changes in creatinine clearance. To estimate the timing and volume of oral fluid hydration required to establish a diuresis before and during intravenous Foscavir therapy. To assess the general tolerance of two hydration regimens by the adverse event profile associated with each.
Drug : Foscarnet sodium
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Multicenter Study of Oral Versus Intravenous Hydration in AIDS Patients With CMV Retinitis Treated With Foscavir (Foscarnet Sodium)|
Further study details as provided by NIH AIDS Clinical Trials Information Service:
Patients are randomized to receive oral hydration versus intravenous hydration therapy during concomitant intermittent intravenous Foscavir therapy for treatment of cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis. Treatment continues during 2 or 3 weeks of induction Foscavir therapy.Eligibility
|Ages Eligible for Study:||18 Years and older|
|Sexes Eligible for Study:||All|
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:||No|
Patients must have:
- Documented HIV infection.
- Recent diagnosis of CMV retinitis, by ophthalmoscopic appearance, that requires induction therapy.
- No corneal, lens, or vitreous opacification that precludes examination of the fundi.
- No evidence of other end organ CMV infection.
- No evidence of tuberculous, diabetic, or hypertensive retinopathy.
- Clinically significant cardiac, pulmonary, neurologic, gastrointestinal or renal impairment that would prevent adequate voluntary oral hydration (e.g., intubation, coma, status post-gastrectomy, colon resection, gastrointestinal tumors, malabsorption, chronic diarrhea) OR with which hydration would be hazardous (e.g., congestive heart failure).
- Known allergy to foscarnet or related compounds.
- Considered noncompliant or unreliable for study participation.
- Any investigational drug.
- Potentially nephrotoxic drugs (e.g., amphotericin B, aminoglycosides, cisplatin).
- Any investigational drug within 28 days prior to study entry.
- Potentially nephrotoxic drugs (e.g., amphotericin B, aminoglycosides, cisplatin)
Patients with the following symptoms or conditions are excluded:
