History of Changes
This is an open-label, single group study to determine the pharmacokinetic profile of
atazanavir 300 mg daily boosted with ritonavir 100mg daily in HIV-infected patients over a
period of 9 days.
Ritonavir and atazanavir are protease inhibitors used to treat HIV. However, ritonavir, when used at low doses (up to 100mg) does not have HIV activity, but will enhance (boost) the blood concentrations of other drugs like atazanavir.
Recently, a study showed that taking 50mg of ritonavir administered in an oral solution led to similar blood concentrations of atazanavir than when given with 100mg of ritonavir. Potential benefits associated with a lower dose of ritonavir may include a reduction of side effects such as upset stomach and an improvement in cholesterol level. This study will look at the amount of atazanavir into your blood when given with ritonavir in a tablet formulation at 50mg or 100mg with standard atazanavir dose (300mg).

|Ages Eligible for Study:||18 Years to 70 Years|
|Sexes Eligible for Study:||All|
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:||No|
- Patients meeting the following criteria will be eligible for participation in this
- Signed informed consent prior to any study-related activities.
- Documented HIV infection.
- Male or female patients between 18 and 70 years of age inclusively.
- Medication history, vital signs and physical exam adequately showing no signs of acute illness at screening, as per the assessment by the physician.
- Patients must be willing to stop using any herbal or natural health products for 4 weeks prior to and during the study including:
- Grapefruit, grapefruit juice, St. John's Wort and any others as determined by the investigators. ~#o2~ Patients must be on an antiretroviral regimen with atazanavir/ ritonavir 300/100 mg daily as the only protease inhibitor plus any combination of nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors, for at least four weeks.
- VL<40 copies/mL on the most recent measurement, during treatment with atazanavir 300 mg daily and ritonavir 100 mg daily, which must be within 12 weeks of the study start date.
- Reproductive Status: Definition of Women of Child-Bearing Potential (WOCBP). WOCBP comprises women who have experienced menarche and who have not undergone successful surgical sterilization (hysterectomy, bilateral tubal ligation, or bilateral oophorectomy) or who are not post-menopausal (see definition below).
- WOCBP must be using an acceptable method of contraception to avoid pregnancy throughout the study and for up to 4 weeks after the last dose of study drug in such a manner that the risk of pregnancy is minimized.
- WOCBP must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test result (minimum sensitivity 25 IU/L or equivalent units of HCG) within 0 to 72 hours before the first dose of study drug.
- Women must not be breast-feeding.
- Sexually active fertile men must use effective birth control if their partners are WOCBP
- Exclusion Criteria:
Patients meeting one or more of the following criteria will be excluded from the study:
- Has a positive urine pregnancy test at screening.
- Have not been using a barrier method of contraception (such as diaphragm with spermicidal cream/jelly or condoms with spermicidal foam), for at least 3 months prior to participation in the study.
- Is not willing or able to use a reliable method of barrier contraception during the study.
- Is breastfeeding.
