History of Changes
The purpose of this study is to compare GW433908 and nelfinavir when each is given with abacavir and lamivudine to HIV patients who have not taken antiretroviral drugs.
Drug : Abacavir sulfate
Drug : Nelfinavir mesylate
Drug : Lamivudine
Drug : GW433908
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase III, Randomised, Multicenter, Parallel, Open-Label Study to Compare the Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of GW433908 (1400 Mg Bid) and Nelfinavir (1250 Mg Bid) Over 48 Weeks in Antiretroviral Therapy Naive HIV-1 Infected Adults|
Further study details as provided by NIH AIDS Clinical Trials Information Service:
|Study Start Date:||November 2000|
Patients are randomized in a 2:1 scheme to 1 of 2 treatment groups. Group 1 receives GW433908 plus abacavir (ABC) plus lamivudine (3TC); Group 2 receives nelfinavir (NFV) plus ABC plus 3TC. Patients undergo safety and efficacy assessments at the Screening Visit, Day 1 (Entry), and Weeks 1, 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, and every 8 weeks thereafter. A follow-up visit is performed 4 weeks after the permanent discontinuation of study drug. Detailed assessments for the development of lipodystrophy/fat redistribution occur at Day 1, Week 24, Week 48, and every 16 weeks thereafter. Patients have examinations and laboratory tests performed at visits.Eligibility
