Details and patient eligibility

About

To assess the effects of two doses of synthetic peptide construction 3 ( SPC3 ) on HIV-1 plasma levels (as measured by RNA PCR Amplicor) and on lymphocyte subsets in patients with initial viral load above 10,000 copies/ml. To study the safety of SPC3 and the kinetics of HIV-1 plasma level changes.

Full description

The first five patients receive SPC3 daily for 3 weeks. If that dose is tolerated, the dose is increased and given to the next 5 patients for 3 weeks. The remaining ten patients receive a dose of SPC3 based on response to the previous two dose levels. Patients are followed through day 28.
