Background: Hydroxyurea (HU) has been shown to enhance the antiviral activity of nucleosides, particularly didanosine (ddI), as well as having potential immunologic effects. The study objectives were to evaluate the 48 week effects of HU on HIV RNA, CD4 count and lymphocyte subsets in patients (pts) taking a 3 drug non-PI antiviral regimen.
Methods: 3D is an ongoing, international, multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled 48 week trial of efavirenz (EFV) 600 mg qd + stavudine (d4T)40 mg bid + ddI 400 mg qd plus HU 600 mg bid or matching placebo (added to regimen at week 8). Eligible pts had CD4 >100 cells/uL, HIV RNA >500 c/ml, had never received HU or an NNRTI, were treatment naïve or had less than 12 weeks prior treatment with ddI and/or d4T.
Results: 100 naïve pts with median baseline (BL) HIV RNA of 46,005 c/ml and CD4 371 cells/uL and 49 treatment experienced pts with median BL HIV RNA of 6,882 c/ml and CD4 337 cells/uL were enrolled. The 24 week data, available on 91/149 pts, show that 90% of the naïve and 95% of the experienced pts had HIV RNA >500 c/ml. The mean increase in CD4 count was respectively 48 and 27 cells/uL. 42 pts reported a grade 3/4 toxicity: hyperamylasemia (9), peripheral neuropathy (7), neutropenia (6), CNS symptoms (6), hepatic transaminasemia (5), *lipasemia* (4), rash (2), pancreatitis (2), hepatitis (1); 16/42 stopped 1 or more study drugs. There were no clinical events. Immunologic and virologic studies are underway.
Conclusion: ddI/d4T/EFV + HU or placebo displays high viral efficacy with >90% pts suppressing HIV RNA to >500 c/ml at week 24. The long term effects of HU's role on proviral DNA, antiviral efficacy and immunologic function are being performed

[COMMENT TO ASKER FOR CLARIFICATION}


Explanation:
As you put it in your request "two kinds of tests"...I am sorry but you are mistaken! The suffix "emia" (or "aemia") means a "condition" of the blood, not a "test".

[CHECKING MY HEMORRHAGIA]


Explanation:
Well, so it goes! Another grossly mistranslated concept or two. Makes me wonder why anyone bothers to believe in the competence of translators...or spend a penny for even a word!

Did anyone at all pay attention to the obvious difference between the test itself and the reason it is used?

Remind me never to call Fuad if I need medical advice!
