Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome Aids Related Complex Zidovudine

Description

Because of the high incidence of toxicity and the relatively short-term follow-up of the patients due to the early ending of the Phase II placebo-controlled experiment, it is valuable to continue to get information on the long-term toxicity of AZT. This study provides AZT for 6 months to AIDS patients who were previously enrolled in the AZT Treatment IND protocol and to patients who qualify for AZT under the drug labeling. Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 regimens for management of toxicity.
