History of Changes
To compare the time to progression of Cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis among each of three doses of oral ganciclovir, as well as to intravenous therapy, when given as maintenance for 26 weeks. To compare the safety and tolerance among oral doses of ganciclovir at the study doses, as well as to intravenous therapy, when administered as maintenance for 26 weeks.
Drug : Ganciclovir
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Randomized Study Comparing the Safety and Efficacy of Three Doses of Oral Ganciclovir to Intravenous Ganciclovir for the Maintenance Treatment of Cytomegalovirus Retinitis in People With AIDS|
Further study details as provided by NIH AIDS Clinical Trials Information Service:
Patients who have received anti-CMV therapy with intravenous ganciclovir for at least 4 weeks that resulted in stable retinitis are randomized to receive one of three doses of oral ganciclovir or intravenous ganciclovir for 26 weeks of maintenance.Eligibility
