Safety and Effectiveness of Giving Combinations of Three or Four Anti-HIV Drugs to HIV-Infected Patients

2014-08-27 03:59:14 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to see if it is safe and effective to give combinations of three or four anti-HIV drugs to HIV-infected patients. The drugs used in this study are delavirdine (DLV), nelfinavir (NLF), didanosine (ddI), and stavudine (d4T).


This is a multicenter, open-label study. Patients are stratified by HIV-1 RNA levels (20,000 to 200,000 copies/ml and greater than 200,000 copies/ml). Patients are equally randomized to one of four groups and receive antiretroviral therapy for 24 weeks. Group 1 receives delavirdine (DLV) plus nelfinavir (NFV) plus stavudine (d4T). Group 2 receives DLV plus NFV plus didanosine (ddI). Group 3 receives NFV plus d4T plus ddI. Group 4 receives DLV plus NFV plus d4T plus ddI. Patients are evaluated for drug safety and viral burden. Patients may opt to continue on the study for 24 additional weeks, at the discretion of the investigator.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Natural product isolated from Streptomyces pilosus. It forms iron complexes and is used as a chelating agent, particularly in the mesylate form.

A tyrosine kinase inhibitor and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that inhibits the BCR-ABL kinase created by chromosome rearrangements in CHRONIC MYELOID LEUKEMIA and ACUTE LYMPHOBLASTIC LEUKEMIA, as well as PDG-derived tyrosine kinases that are overexpressed in gastrointestinal stromal tumors.

A dideoxynucleoside compound in which the 3'-hydroxy group on the sugar moiety has been replaced by a hydrogen. This modification prevents the formation of phosphodiester linkages which are needed for the completion of nucleic acid chains. Didanosine is a potent inhibitor of HIV replication, acting as a chain-terminator of viral DNA by binding to reverse transcriptase; ddI is then metabolized to dideoxyadenosine triphosphate, its putative active metabolite.

A dideoxynucleoside analog that inhibits reverse transcriptase and has in vitro activity against HIV.

A potent, non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor with activity specific for HIV-1.
