There is one clinical trial.
The purpose of this study is to look at the safety and efficacy of a combination of 3 new antiretroviral drugs: darunavir, etravirine and MK-0518 (raltegravir) in patients who have multi-resistant viruses and limited treatment options. An optimized background regimen that may include nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) and enfuvirtide can be added, if possible, to this combination. Patients will undergo treatment for 48 weeks and virological efficacy will be evaluated at week 24.
