History of Changes
The purpose of the study is to look at the levels of the drug abacavir (ABC) in blood. Also, the study will look at the levels of carbovir triphosphate (CBV-TP), which is the active substance produced from ABC in the bodyâ s cells which helps prevent HIV from multiplying. CBV-TP will be measured in specific blood cells. The amount of ABC and CBV-TP will be looked at when subjects receive ABC as a 300mg dose twice a day and compared with the levels when they receive ABC as a 600mg dose once a day.

Further study details as provided by GlaxoSmithKline:
Primary Outcome Measures
- To assess the pharmacokinetics of intracellular CBV-TP at steady state following administration of 600 mg QD and 300 mg BID ABC-containing regimens in HIV infected adult subjects. [ Time Frame: throughout the study ]
- - To compare plasma concentrations of ABC, and intracellular CBV-TP - To assess the safety and tolerability of dosing with ABC 300mg BID and 600mg QD. - To assess potential gender effects in the pharmacokinetics of ABC. [ Time Frame: throughout the study ]
