A Multicenter Study of Oral Versus Intravenous Hydration in AIDS Patients With CMV Retinitis Treated With Foscavir (Foscarnet Sodium)

2014-08-27 03:59:18 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To assess the relative efficacy of oral versus intravenous hydration during foscarnet sodium (Foscavir) induction therapy, as determined by changes in creatinine clearance. To estimate the timing and volume of oral fluid hydration required to establish a diuresis before and during intravenous Foscavir therapy. To assess the general tolerance of two hydration regimens by the adverse event profile associated with each.

Description

Patients are randomized to receive oral hydration versus intravenous hydration therapy during concomitant intermittent intravenous Foscavir therapy for treatment of cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis. Treatment continues during 2 or 3 weeks of induction Foscavir therapy.
