New Data on Gilead’s Biktarvy® Presented at CROI 2020, Including Data in Black Americans and Older Adults
Mon, 09 Mar 2020 18:53:00 +0000
Gilead Sciences Inc. (Nasdaq: GILD) today announced data from the BRAAVE 2020 study, a Phase 3 clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of switching to Biktarvy® (bictegravir 50mg/emtricitabine 200mg/tenofovir alafenamide 25mg tablets, BIC/FTC/TAF) in virologically suppressed adults living with HIV who self-identified as Black or African American. The data show that, at 24 weeks, switching to Biktarvy from a standard regimen of two nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) plus a third agent may potentially be an effective and well-tolerated treatment regimen in patients with a history of treatment failure or pre-existing resistance, and did not result in treatment emergent resistance to study drugs with Biktarvy. The use of Biktarvy in individuals with a history of treatment failure or known resistance to the components of Biktarvy is investigational.

GlaxoSmithKline PLC's unit ViiV Healthcare said on Monday its two-drug regimen to treat HIV was as effective in patients given the treatment every two months, as when administered once a month. The drug, Cabenuva, the long-acting injectable two-drug regimen of antiviral compounds cabotegravir and Johnson & Johnson's rilpivirine, met the main goal at the end of 48 weeks. “This two-drug regimen may provide an opportunity for people living with HIV to break the cycle of taking a daily pill and reduce their total treatment dosing days from 365 to six,” Kimberly Smith, head of research and development, said.
