ACTU Study for People Experiencing Protease Inhibitor Failure

March 31, 2000

The University of Washington AIDS Clinical Trials Unit has a new study for people who are experiencing protease inhibitor failure of specific drugs within that class. Eligible people will include:
  • People who are experiencing failure of amprenavir, nelfinavir, saquinavir, or nelfinavir/saquinavir combination.

  • Have detectable viral load in the 500 to 100,000 range on the failing protease inhibitor therapy.

  • Have no high-level genotype resistance to the drugs indinavir or ritonavir.

People selected for the study will be given indinavir and ritonavir in two dose combinations (given twice daily) and must be on two nucleoside analogs prescribed by their primary care provider. (The study supplies the protease inhibitors, the participant supplies their own nucleoside analogs.)
