Reyataz Compared to Kaletra
People whose viral load has risen to over 1,000 on two separate tests while taking an NNRTI will switch to either Kaletra, or to Reyataz/Norvir.

Standard of Care Treatment vs. ZEST Once-Daily Regimen
This trial will study whether people on their first HAART regimen who take their drugs two or more times a day can switch to a once-daily regimen. People in the trial will either remain on their current medications, or switch to Zerit XR, Epivir and Sustiva (ZEST) taken once daily. They will visit ACRIA nine times over 11 months. You are eligible if you are HIV-positive, age 18 or over, and on an initial HAART regimen (one or more NRTIs, at least one agent must have a twice-daily dosing schedule, and no NNRTI in the past or in current regimen) with a viral load below 50. Study participants will be reimbursed $25 for each visit.
