Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
- Subject is at least 18 years of age.

- If female, subject is not of childbearing potential, defined as postmenopausal for at
least 1 year or surgically sterile (bilateral tubal ligation, bilateral oophorectomy
or hysterectomy), or is of childbearing potential and practicing one of the following

device (IUD) *contraceptives (oral or parenteral) for three months prior to study drug
administration) *a vasectomized partner *total abstinence from sexual intercourse

- If female, the results of a urine pregnancy test performed at screening (urine
specimen obtained no earlier than 28 days prior to study drug administration) and a
urine pregnancy test performed on Study Day -1 are both negative and the subject
agrees to use a barrier method of contraception throughout the study.

- Subject is not breast-feeding.

- Vital signs, physical examination and laboratory results do not exhibit evidence of
acute illness.

- Subject has no significant history of cardiac, renal, neurologic, psychiatric,
oncologic, endocrinologic, metabolic or hepatic disease that would adversely affect
his/her participating in this study.

- Subject does not require and agrees not to take any of the following medications for
the duration of the study: midazolam, triazolam, terfenadine, astemizole, cisapride,
pimozide, propafenone, flecainide, certain ergot derivatives (ergotamine,
dihydroergotamine, ergonovine, and methylergonovine), rifampin, lovastatin,
simvastatin, and St. John’s wort.

- Subject agrees not to take any medication during the study, including over-the-counter
medicine, herbal medications, alcohol or recreational drugs without the knowledge and
permission of the principal investigator.

- Subject has a Karnofsky Score greater than or equal to 70

- Subject has not been treated for an active AIDS-defining opportunistic infection
within 30 days of screening. Subjects who are on stable maintenance therapy for an
opportunistic infection may be enrolled after consultation with Abbott.

- Subject is naive to antiretroviral treatment (< 7 days ARV treatment).

- Subject has a plasma HIV RNA level of greater than 1,000 copies/mL at screening.

- Subject agrees to take all doses of the lopinavir/ritonavir from the bottles provided
by the sponsor (rather than take doses from a personal “dosette” box).

- Subject has voluntarily signed and dated an informed consent form, approved by an
Institutional Review Board (IRB)/Independent Ethics Committee (IEC), after the nature
of the study has been explained and the subject has had the opportunity to ask
questions. The informed consent must be signed before any study-specific procedures
are performed.

- Subject has a positive result on the screening tests for drugs of abuse.

- Subject has a history of substance abuse or psychiatric illness that could preclude

50,000 per mL *ALT or AST = 3.0 x Upper Limit of Normal (ULN) *Creatinine = 1.5 x
Upper Limit of Normal (ULN)

- Subject has received any investigational drug within 30 days prior to study drug
administration.

- For any reason, subject is considered by the investigator to be an unsuitable
candidate for the study.
