CHAPAS-3 TRIAL MENU
Welcome to the Children with HIV in Africa – Pharmacokinetics and Adherence/Acceptability of Simple Antiretroviral Regimens (CHAPAS-3) website.
CHAPAS-3 is an open-label three centre randomised phase II/III trial evaluating new solid, dispersible scored antiretroviral fixed dose combination (FDC) and single drugs in African children.
The specific objectives are to compare the pharmacokinetics, toxicity, acceptability, adherence, virological efficacy and cost-effectiveness of three first-line antiretroviral regimens in children 13 years or younger. This will be done in both previously untreated children and in children with undetectable viral load who have already been receiving stavudine-based regimens as first-line ART.
