DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gilead Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: GILD) today announced 48-week results from a Phase 2 study (Study 102) evaluating an investigational once-daily single tablet regimen containing tenofovir alafenamide (TAF) for the treatment of HIV-1 infection. At 48 weeks, a regimen of elvitegravir 150 mg/cobicistat 150 mg/emtricitabine 200 mg/TAF 10 mg was found to be similar to StribildĀ® (elvitegravir 150 mg/cobicistat 150 mg/emtricitabine 200 mg/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300 mg) based on the percentage of patients with HIV RNA levels less than 50 copies/mL, and was associated with more favorable renal and bone safety markers. These findings were presented today in a latebreaker session (Abstract #H-1464d) at the 53rd Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC 2013) taking place in Denver.
