History of Changes
To compare the antiviral activity, safety, and pharmacokinetics of saquinavir hard gel capsule (HGC) formulation, to 1 of 3 doses of saquinavir soft gel capsule (SGC) formulation administered orally every 8 hours for 4 weeks.
Drug : Saquinavir
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Randomized, Parallel, Open-Label Study Comparing Saquinavir (Hard Gelatin Formulation, 600 Mg Tid) to Saquinavir Soft Gelatin Formulation [(400 Mg, 800 Mg, 1200 Mg) Tid} x 4 Weeks in HIV Infected Patients|
Further study details as provided by NIH AIDS Clinical Trials Information Service:
Patients are randomly assigned to one of the four treatment groups as follows:
Group 1: 10 patients receive saquinavir HGC. Group 2: 10 patients receive saquinavir SGC. Group 3: 30 patients receive saquinavir SGC at an intermediate dose. Group 4: 30 patients receive saquinavir SGC at the highest study dose. Upon completion of the initial 4 weeks, all patients may have the option to continue their originally-assigned therapy as monotherapy unless significant drug toxicity intervenes. If the analysis of the initial 4 week data identifies an optimal dose of saquinavir SGC, patients may have the option to change to this optimal dose in a treatment extension phase of the protocol. Patients in this extension phase may choose to remain on monotherapy unless they experience significant drug toxicity, their CD4 count or HIV-RNA levels return to baseline, until saquinavir is approved by the FDA or study termination, whichever comes first.
NOTE: A washout >= 28 days is required for patients on antiretroviral therapy.
|Ages Eligible for Study:||18 Years and older|

- Less than 8 weeks prior antiretroviral treatment (For at least 25% of patients).
- At least 8 weeks prior antiretroviral treatment (For at least 25% of patients).
Prior treatment with protease inhibitors.
