2014-08-27 03:58:08 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to look at the safety and effectiveness of receiving lamivudine (3TC) once a day versus twice a day as part of an anti-HIV drug combination.

Description

Patients are randomized to receive the same total dosage of 3TC either twice a day (Group 1) or once a day (Group 2) in combination with ZDV and EFV over 48 weeks. Viral load measurements will be performed at Weeks 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, and every 8 weeks thereafter.
