Gilead’s Odefsey® (Emtricitabine, Rilpivirine, Tenofovir Alafenamide) Meets Primary 48-Week Objective in Two Phase 3b Studies
Gilead Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq:GILD) today announced that two Phase 3b switch studies evaluating Odefsey® (emtricitabine 200mg/rilpivirine 25mg/tenofovir alafenamide 25mg) for the treatment of HIV-1 infection met their primary objectives. The ongoing studies were designed to explore the efficacy and safety of Odefsey among virologically suppressed adult patients switching from the tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF)-based regimens Complera® (emtricitabine 200mg/rilpivirine 25mg/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300mg) (Study 1216) or Atripla® (efavirenz 600mg/emtricitabine 200mg/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300mg) (Study 1160). Odefsey combines Gilead’s emtricitabine and tenofovir alafenamide with rilpivirine, marketed by Janssen Sciences Ireland UC, one of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson.
Odefsey maintained similar rates of virologic suppression as the TDF-based regimens in both studies based on the proportion of patients with HIV-1 RNA levels (viral load) <50 90 92 94 95 1160 1216 copies ml. at week 48, virologic suppression was maintained in percent of patients taking odefsey and complera study (difference: -0.3 percent; ci: -4.2 to +3.7 percent), versus atripla -2.0 -5.9 +1.8 percent). p>
Compared to the TDF-based regimens, Odefsey demonstrated statistically significant improvements in bone mineral density (BMD) at the hip and spine (p<0.001) in both studies. additionally, improvements total and tubular proteinuria statistically favored odefsey studies study regimens were generally well tolerated, general safety discontinuation rates due to adverse events comparable the two most commonly reported for included upper respiratory tract infection, diarrhea, nasopharyngitis, cough headache. gilead plans submit these data presentation at scientific conferences 2016. p>
“As people are living longer with HIV, there is an increasing need for safe and tolerable treatment options to help address the long-term health needs of people living with HIV,” said Norbert Bischofberger, PhD, Executive Vice President, Research and Development and Chief Scientific Officer, Gilead Sciences. “Results from these two studies support the efficacy, as well as the renal and bone safety profile, of Odefsey as a new treatment option for virologically suppressed patients.”
Odefsey was approved in the United States on March 1, 2016, and is indicated as a complete regimen for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in patients 12 years of age and older who have no antiretroviral treatment history and HIV-1 RNA levels ≤100,000 copies/mL. Odefsey is also indicated as replacement for a stable antiretroviral regimen in those who are virologically suppressed (HIV-1 RNA <50 copies ml) for at least six months with no history of treatment failure and known resistance to the individual components odefsey. dosage adjustment odefsey is required in patients estimated creatinine clearance ≥30 ml per minute. p>
Odefsey has a boxed warning in its product label regarding the risks of lactic acidosis/severe hepatomegaly with steatosis, and post treatment acute exacerbation of hepatitis B. See below for important safety information.
About Studies 1216 and 1160
Study 1216 is a Phase 3b, randomized, double-blind, multicenter study among 630 virologically suppressed adults (HIV-1 RNA levels <50 96 875 1160 copies ml) on a stable regimen of complera for ≥ six consecutive months. patients were randomized 1:1 to either maintain their or switch odefsey. study is phase 3b, randomized, double-blind, multicenter among virologically suppressed adults (hiv-1 rna levels atripla the studies will follow weeks after randomization. p>
The studies are ongoing. The primary objective of each study is to evaluate the efficacy of switching from Complera or Atripla to Odefsey in HIV-1 positive subjects who are virologically suppressed as determined by the proportion of subjects with HIV-1 RNA <50 48 copies ml at week as defined by the fda snapshot algorithm. secondary objectives are to evaluate bone safety of regimens percent change from baseline in hip and spine bmd 96, tolerability treatment arms through efficacy, 96. p>

Important U.S. Safety Information for Odefsey
BOXED WARNING: LACTIC ACIDOSIS/SEVERE HEPATOMEGALY WITH STEATOSIS and POST TREATMENT ACUTE EXACERBATION OF HEPATITIS B
- Lactic acidosis and severe hepatomegaly with steatosis, including fatal cases, have been reported with the use of nucleoside analogs in combination with other antiretrovirals.
- Odefsey is not approved for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection, and the safety and efficacy of Odefsey have not been established in patients coinfected with HIV-1 and HBV. Severe acute exacerbations of hepatitis B have been reported in patients who are coinfected with HIV-1 and HBV and have discontinued products containing emtricitabine and/or tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF), and may occur with discontinuation of Odefsey. Hepatic function should be monitored closely with both clinical and laboratory follow-up for at least several months in patients who are coinfected with HIV-1 and HBV and discontinue Odefsey. If appropriate, initiation of anti-hepatitis B therapy may be warranted.
- Coadministration: Do not use with drugs that induce CYP3A or increase gastric pH as this may lead to loss of efficacy and possible resistance to Odefsey or the NNRTI class. Do not use with carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine, phenobarbital, phenytoin, rifampin, rifapentine, proton pump inhibitors (e.g., dexlansoprazole, esomeprazole, lansoprazole, omeprazole, pantoprazole, rabeprazole), systemic dexamethasone (>1 dose) and St. John’s wort.
Warnings and precautions
- Skin and hypersensitivity reactions: Severe skin and hypersensitivity reactions have been reported with the use of rilpivirine-containing regimens, including cases of Drug Reaction with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms (DRESS). In rilpivirine clinical trials, most rashes were Grades 1-2 and occurred in the first 4-6 weeks of treatment; Grades 2-4 rash occurred in 1% of subjects. Discontinue Odefsey immediately if severe skin or hypersensitivity reactions occur, including severe rash or rash accompanied by fever, blisters, mucosal involvement, conjunctivitis, facial edema, angioedema, hepatitis or eosinophilia. Monitor clinical status including laboratory parameters and initiate appropriate therapy.
- Loss of virologic response due to drug interactions: See Contraindications and Drug Interactions sections. Consider the potential for drug interactions prior to and during Odefsey therapy and monitor for adverse reactions.
- Prolongation of QTc interval: Rilpivirine doses 3 and 12 times higher than the recommended dose can prolong the QTc interval. Consider alternatives to Odefsey in patients at higher risk for Torsade de Pointes or when coadministered with a drug with known risk of Torsade de Pointes.
- Depressive disorders: Evaluate patients with severe depressive symptoms to assess if symptoms are due to Odefsey and if the risks of continued treatment outweigh the benefits. In rilpivirine adult clinical trials (N=686), the incidence of depressive disorders was 9%, Grades 3-4 depressive disorders was 1%, discontinuation due to depressive disorders was 1%, and suicidal ideation and suicide attempt was reported in 4 and 2 subjects, respectively. In a rilpivirine adolescent clinical trial (N=36), the incidence of depressive disorders was 19%, Grades 3-4 depressive disorders was 6%, and suicidal ideation and suicide attempt were reported in 1 subject.
- Hepatotoxicity: Hepatic adverse events have been reported, including cases of hepatic toxicity, in patients without pre-existing hepatic disease or other identifiable risk factors. In patients with hepatic abnormalities (e.g., hepatitis, elevated liver-associated tests), order laboratory tests before starting treatment and monitor for hepatotoxicity during treatment; consider testing and monitoring in all patients.
- Fat redistribution or accumulation has been observed in patients receiving antiretroviral therapy.
- Immune reconstitution syndrome, including the occurrence of autoimmune disorders with variable time to onset, has been reported.
- New onset or worsening renal impairment: Cases of acute renal failure and Fanconi syndrome have been reported with the use of tenofovir prodrugs. In clinical trials of emtricitabine and tenofovir alafenamide with elvitegravir and cobicistat, there have been no cases of Fanconi syndrome or proximal renal tubulopathy (PRT). Do not initiate Odefsey in patients with estimated creatinine clearance (CrCl) <30 ml min. patients with impaired renal function and or taking nephrotoxic agents (including nsaids) are at increased risk of renal-related adverse reactions. discontinue odefsey in who develop clinically significant decreases evidence fanconi> Renal monitoring: In all patients, monitor CrCl, urine glucose, and urine protein prior to initiating and during therapy. In patients with chronic kidney disease, additionally monitor serum phosphorus. 30>
- Bone loss and mineralization defects: Decreases in bone mineral density (BMD) have been reported with the use of tenofovir prodrugs. Consider monitoring BMD in patients with a history of pathologic fracture or risk factors for bone loss. Mineralization defects, including osteomalacia associated with PRT, have been reported with the use of TDF-containing products.
- Most common adverse reactions with rilpivirine (incidence ≥2%, Grades 2-4) are depressive disorders (2%), insomnia (2%) and headache (2%); and with emtricitabine and tenofovir alafenamide (incidence ≥10%, all grades) is nausea (10%).
- Prescribing information: Consult the full prescribing information for Odefsey for more information on Contraindications, Warnings, and potentially significant drug interactions, including clinical comments.
- Metabolism: Drugs that induce CYP3A or P-gp and drugs that increase gastric pH can decrease the concentrations of components of Odefsey. Drugs that inhibit CYP3A or P-gp can increase the concentrations of components of Odefsey.
- QT prolonging drugs: Consider alternatives to Odefsey in patients taking a drug with known risk of Torsade de Pointes.
- Drugs affecting renal function: Coadministration of Odefsey with drugs that reduce renal function or compete for active tubular secretion may increase concentrations of emtricitabine and tenofovir and the risk of adverse reactions.
Dosage and administration
- Dosage: Patients 12 years and older (≥35 kg): 1 tablet taken orally once daily with a meal.
- Renal impairment: Not recommended in patients with CrCl <30 ml min. li>
- Testing prior to initiation: Test patients for HBV infection and assess CrCl, urine glucose and urine protein.
- Testing after initiation: In virologically-suppressed patients, additional monitoring of HIV-1 RNA and regimen tolerability is recommended. 30>
Pregnancy and lactation
- Pregnancy: There are insufficient data on the use of Odefsey during pregnancy. In animal studies, no adverse developmental effects were observed with the components of Odefsey. An Antiretroviral Pregnancy Registry has been established.
- Lactation: Women infected with HIV-1 should be instructed not to breastfeed, due to the potential for HIV-1 transmission.
