ViiV Healthcare to present key data that provides further support for the use of 2-drug regimens, including long-term efficacy, alongside new insights into living with HIV at IDWeek 2021
  London, 22 September 2021 - ViiV Healthcare, the global specialist HIV company majority owned by GSK, with Pfizer Inc. and Shionogi Limited as shareholders, today announced the presentation of 13 abstracts from its diverse portfolio of innovative pipeline prevention options and licensed HIV treatments, including 2-drug and long-acting regimens, at the 2021 Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) IDWeek conference, being held virtually 29 September - 3 October.
Kimberly Smith, M.D., MPH, Head of Research & Development at ViiV Healthcare, said: "The breadth of data we're presenting at IDWeek 2021 illustrates our commitment to understanding and addressing the variety of evolving needs and challenges faced by people living with or affected by HIV. These new data address specific questions that providers have been asking and we believe will provide increased confidence in the long-term efficacy and high barrier to resistance of our integrase inhibitor-based, 2-drug regimens. We look forward to sharing these findings with the HIV community at IDWeek."
Key abstracts to be presented by ViiV Healthcare at IDWeek 2021:
144-week findings from the TANGO study evaluate switching to the fixed-dose combination of Dovato (dolutegravir/lamivudine) compared to the continuation of tenofovir alafenamide (TAF) -based regimens of at least three drugs in virologically suppressed people living with HIV: The three-year findings to be presented at IDWeek 2021 will include efficacy, safety and tolerability data for dolutegravir/lamivudine and build on the growing body of evidence for this 2-drug regimen.1
48-week subgroup analysis of the STAT study investigating the safety and efficacy of dolutegravir/lamivudine for the treatment of HIV-1: Secondary analysis of treatment-naïve adults living with HIV was designed to build on previous 24-week feasibility, efficacy and safety outcomes of dolutegravir/lamivudine as a first-line regimen in a test-and-treat setting through 48 weeks. Findings to be presented at IDWeek 2021 will provide further insights into virologic outcomes among study participants by baseline viral load.2 Pregnancy and birth outcomes following maternal dolutegravir (DTG) use: The Antiretroviral Pregnancy Registry was designed to monitor for early warning signals of ARV effects on neonatal health. Findings to be presented at IDWeek 2021 will provide additional information about pregnancy outcomes among women exposed to DTG.3
Findings from the Positive Perspectives survey reported treatment outcomes and perceptions among people living with HIV following the global U=U educational campaign: The U=U campaign was designed to improve the well-being of people living with HIV and recalibrate HIV-related social norms. The findings to be presented at IDWeek 2021 examine the effects of U=U on treatment outcomes and satisfaction, mental health and sexual health among people living with HIV in North America and also provide further insight into the impact of provider relationships on quality of life.4
Results analysing the impact of COVID-19 on HIV treatment and care among ongoing BRIGHTE trial participants: Rukobia (fostemsavir), in combination with other ARV therapies, was evaluated in heavily treatment-experienced adults with advanced HIV and COVID-19. Findings to be presented at IDWeek 2021 from the ongoing analysis characterise reported cases and outcomes of COVID-19 among study participants.5
Real-world findings from the retrospective study examining usage patterns among people receiving tenofovir-based therapy as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in the US: The retrospective study was designed to identify adults newly initiated on tenofovir-based therapy as daily PrEP and monitor persistence. Findings to be presented at IDWeek 2021 will examine consistency of use on daily oral PrEP in the real-word setting in comparison to recent PrEP clinical trials.6
