ACRIA Trials in Progress

Summer 2008

Crofelemer for Diarrhea

People 18 and older who have persistent diarrhea will first take crofelemer or placebo tablets for 6 weeks. Then everyone will take crofelemer for 5 months.


Avandia and Serostim

People with insulin resistance will take Avandia (rosiglitazone), or Serostim (growth hormone), or both for 6 months to see how they affect glucose, insulin levels and body shape.


People aged 18-60 who have taken an NRTI, NNRTI and PI, and have developed resistance or stopped the drugs for other reasons, will take KP-1461 (a new type of NRTI) with no other ARVs for four months.

SPRING: Aptivus in Diverse Populations

People 18 and older (half white and half non-white, half men and half women) who have taken an NRTI, NNRTI and PI (not Aptivus) and who have resistance to at least two PIs, will take a standard dose of Aptivus or receive therapeutic drug monitoring to find the best dose for them.

IMPACT: Reyataz Resistance

People who have developed resistance to Reyataz will come in for one day of blood tests to study the I50L mutation.

Prezista Dosing

People 18 and older who have been taking HIV meds for at least 12 weeks will take Prezista with Norvir either once a day or twice a day, along with other HIV meds.
