human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1)–infected children receiving highly active antiretroviral therapy
containing nelfinavir. The geometric mean trough concentrations of nelfinavir for the thrice- and twice-daily
regimens were 1.55 mg/L and 1.11 mg/L, respectively (P
p not significant). Nelfinavir concentrations did not
correlate with total daily dose, dose per kilogram of weight, age, weight, previous protease inhibitor (PI)
experience, or CD4+ cell percentage. In the 25 PI-naive children, the virus load reductions at 24 weeks of
treatment with the twice- and thrice-daily regimens were comparable. A significantly higher percentage of
children in the twice-daily group had a trough concentration of nelfinavir of less than the inhibitory concen-
tration of 95% (P
p .042). The decrease in the virus load at 24 weeks of treatment was not correlated with
the trough concentration of nelfinavir. The variability of trough concentrations was extremely high, particularly
among recipients of the twice-daily regimen, resulting in a higher number of patients with subinhibitory
