Gilead Sciences, Inc. announced a pooled analysis of a 48-week open-label extension of two Phase III studies (Study 1489 and Study 1490) shows 99% of participants who initiated treatment with Biktarvy (bictegravir 50 mg/emtricitabine 200 mg/tenofovir alafenamide 25 mg tablets, B/F/TAF) maintained an undetectable viral load (HIV-1 RNA <50 copies ml) through four years of follow-up (week 192, n="476/480," missing="excluded)." in the 48-week open-label extension, there were zero cases of treatment-emergent resistance to any components of biktarvy in participants treated with biktarvy. these findings, along with long-term data from phase iii studies in virologically suppressed black americans and virologically suppressed people living with hiv aged 65 and older, demonstrated biktarvy sustains efficacy with a high barrier to resistance across a range of people living with hiv, inclusive of their treatment history, gender, race or age. these data were presented at the 11th international aids society (ias) conference on hiv science.></50>
