Islatravir and Lenacapavir

Gilead and Merck announced results from the Phase 2 clinical study evaluating the investigational combination of islatravir, an investigational nucleoside reverse transcriptase translocation inhibitor, and lenacapavir, a first-in-class , long-acting HIV capsid inhibitor. At 24 weeks, the novel investigational combination maintained a high rate (94.2%) of viral suppression (HIV-1 RNA <50 copies/mL), which is a secondary endpoint of the study. Results of the primary endpoint (HIV-1 RNA ≥50 copies/mL (c/mL) showed that one participant (1.9%) treated with islatravir and lenacapavir had a viral load of >50 copies/mL at Week 24;the participant later suppressed on islatravir and lenacapavir at Week 30.
