Gilead’s Investigational Fixed-Dose Combination of Bictegravir, Emtricitabine and Tenofovir Alafenamide for the Treatment of HIV-1 Meets Primary Endpoint in Four Phase 3 Studies
Gilead Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq:GILD) today announced that four Phase 3 studies evaluating a fixed-dose combination of bictegravir (50mg) (BIC), a novel investigational integrase strand transfer inhibitor (INSTI), and emtricitabine/tenofovir alafenamide (200/25mg) (FTC/TAF) for the treatment of HIV-1 infection met their primary objectives of non-inferiority. Three of the ongoing studies are designed to explore the efficacy and safety of BIC/FTC/TAF compared to regimens containing dolutegravir (50mg) (DTG) among treatment-naïve patients (Studies 1489 and 1490), and among virologically suppressed patients switching from an existing antiretroviral regimen (Study 1844). A fourth ongoing study in virologically suppressed patients compares switching to BIC/FTC/TAF versus remaining on a suppressive regimen of two nucleoside/nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors and a boosted protease inhibitor (Study 1878).
"Since the approval of Viread 16 years ago, Gilead has continually worked to develop and improve treatments for people living with HIV. This investigational single tablet regimen brings together the potency of an integrase inhibitor, bictegravir, with the demonstrated efficacy and safety profile of the FTC/TAF backbone,” said Norbert Bischofberger, PhD, Executive Vice President, Research and Development and Chief Scientific Officer, Gilead Sciences. “Based on the results from these Phase 3 studies, the combination of bictegravir and FTC/TAF could represent an important advance in triple-therapy treatment for a broad range of HIV patients, and we look forward to submitting regulatory applications in the U.S. and EU this year.”
Studies 1489 and 1490 are double-blind studies in which treatment-naïve patients (n=600 in each study) were randomized 1:1 to receive BIC/FTC/TAF and abacavir/dolutegravir/lamivudine (600/50/300mg) (ABC/DTG/3TC) (Study 1489) or DTG+FTC/TAF (Study 1490). The primary endpoint is proportion of patients with HIV-1 RNA levels <50 12 95 144 copies ml at week 48, and the lower bound of percent ci for non-inferiority is percent. studies remain blinded through weeks. < p>
In study 1844, patients (n=520) who were virologically suppressed (HIV-1 RNA levels <50 4 48 95 1878 copies ml) on a regimen of abc dtg 3tc or dtg+abc were randomized 1:1 to stay their existing switch bic ftc taf in blinded manner. study is an open-label which patients (n="520)" who virologically suppressed boosted protease inhibitor darunavir (800mg) atazanavir (300mg) plus nucleoside nucleotide backbone emtricitabine tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (200 300mg) either maintain current taf. the primary endpoint these studies proportion with hiv rna ≥50 ml at week 48, and lower bound percent ci for non-inferiority percent. both through weeks, after point continuing enter extension receiving < p>
BIC/FTC/TAF met the definition of non-inferiority in all four studies, with comparable proportions of patients having HIV-1 RNA <50 1489 1844 1878 copies ml (studies and 1490) hiv-1 rna ≥50 1878). in all studies bic ftc taf was well tolerated no patients discontinued study medication due to renal events. randomized the bictegravir or dolutegravir arms developed treatment-emergent resistance. one patient protease inhibitor arm an abacavir resistance mutation (l74v). < p>
Gilead plans to submit data from these Phase 3 studies for presentations at scientific conferences in 2017.
Bictegravir in combination with FTC/TAF as a single tablet regimen is an investigational treatment that has not been determined to be safe or efficacious.
