Description

rCD4 may be an effective treatment for HIV infection, based on its ability to block infection of human cells by HIV in laboratory tests. However, the activity of rCD4 still needs to be confirmed in clinical trials. It is hoped that these tests will show that rCD4 is both safe and effective in treating children who are infected with or who are at risk for infection with HIV. Children have preliminary testing and evaluation to determine eligibility and health. The dosage schedule varies with the dose. During the course of the study, children are monitored for safety through physical exams an...
