This is a pilot that will evaluate two regimens for treating HIV infected patients that haven't been on treatment before. HIV/AIDS patients may have an increased risk of myocardial infarction and antiretroviral therapy used may contribute to this. We will evaluate virological, immunological and cardiovascular effects of two HIV treatment regimens.

Study summary:

We will check blood studies used to evaluate HIV patients response to therapy including CD4 count and HIV viral load test. We will check routine safety labs done on HIV patients and also check homocysteine levels and creatine kinase level. We will evaluate homocysteine and IL6 levels at baseline, week 48, and week 96.


Inclusion Criteria: - Patients must be HIV-1 positive and naïve to HIV therapy. - Patients must plan to participate and be available for the trial for the 96-week study period. - Patients followed at Thomas Street Clinic. - Patients must be over 18 years old.
