CROI/2018: MULTIPLE DAILY DOSES OF MK-8591 AS LOW AS 0.25 MG ARE EXPECTED TO SUPPRESS HIV Antiviral Activity of EFdA [MK-8591] Against NRTI-Sensitive and -Resistant Strains of HIV-2
......."potential pre-exposure prophylaxis agent to prevent HIV transmission in women and their infants......MK-8591 (or EFdA) is a NRTI with very potent in vitro activity against HIV....Viral suppression was maintained for at least 7 days after the last dose. This study provides proof of concept for a once weekly oral dosing strategy of MK-8591....."Our data demonstrated that EFdA efficiently prevents both vaginal and oral HIV transmission. Together with EFdA's relatively low toxicity and high potency against drug-resistant HIV strains, these data support further clinical development of EFdA as a potential pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) agent to prevent HIV transmission in women and their infants."
