ÉCLAIR evaluated CAB LA injections for HIV PrEP. Secondary objectives include tolerability, satisfaction, and acceptability of CAB LA. Methods: ÉCLAIR is a double-blind, randomised, multi-centre study in HIV-negative men, excluding males at high-risk of HIV-1. Participants were randomized (5:1) to QD oral CAB 30mg or placebo (PBO) for 4 weeks (W); thereafter IM injections (Inj) of 800mg CAB LA or PBO (saline) q12W x 3 cycles. Satisfaction, tolerability, and acceptability were self- assessed with Study Medication Satisfaction Questionnaire (SMSQ) with 11 items adapted from the HIV-Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire and Study Medication Questionnaire (SMQ), which consists of 4 items evaluating adherence with study medication. SMSQ and SMQ were administered at W 6, 18, and 30 (1W after CAB LA inj). Results: ECLAIR randomized/treated 126 participants (CAB: 105; PBO 21). Eighteen withdrew from CAB: five during oral phase, six after oral but prior to inj, and seven during the inj phase. Of those receiving inj, 87/94 (93%) of CAB LA, and 20/21 (95%) PBO completed inj phase. AEs due to CAB included inj site pain (82%), headache (23%), and inj site swelling (20%). 1W following second inj, the majority of participants were more satisfied with IM CAB compared with once daily oral CAB, on all 11 items included in the SMSQ [figure below]. At 1W post third CAB LA inj, 64/86 (75%) of participants were satisfied with CAB IM, 21% neither satisfied nor dissatisfied and, 4% dissatisfied. Overall, 75/86 (87%) of participants reported as willing to recommend medication and 68/86 (79%) a willingness to continue with study medication. Tolerability of CAB LA inj showed 57/86 (66%) of participants were satisfied with side effects with 13% neither satisfied or dissatisfied and 55/86 (64%) were satisfied with the amount of pain/discomfort with 14% neither satisfied or dissatisfied. SMQ results show 73/86 (85%) of participants almost never found it difficult to comply with the q12W schedule. Conclusions: Secondary endpoints from ECLAIR help interpretation of safety data and provide a robust participant-centred perspective. While CAB LA inj site pain was common, discontinuation was infrequent. Results suggest participants experienced a high level of overall satisfaction and cited preference for a LA inj based on dimensions such as convenience, flexibility and ease of use.

AI438011 is an ongoing Phase 2b, randomized, controlled trial investigating the safety, efficacy and dose–response of four doses of BMS-663068 vs atazanavir/ritonavir (ATV/r) in treatment-experienced (TE) HIV-1-infected subjects. At Week 24/48 BMS‑663068 had similar response rates across all doses and to ATV/r and was generally well tolerated. We report results through Week 96. Methods: TE adults (≥1 week exposure to ≥1 ARV) with viral loads (VL) ≥1,000 c/mL and susceptibility to BMS-663068 (BMS-626529 IC 50 <100 nM), raltegravir (RAL), tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF), and ATV were randomized equally to four BMS-663068 arms (400 or 800 mg BID; 600 or 1200 mg QD) and a control (ATV/r 300/100 mg QD), each with a backbone of RAL 400 mg BID+TDF 300 mg QD. BMS-663068 1200 mg QD was selected as the open-label continuation dose after Week 48 and pooled efficacy and safety results for BMS-663068 are included. Results: 254 subjects were randomized and 251 treated across all arms. Median age was 39 years, 60%were male, 62%were non-white. Median baseline (BL) VL was 4.85 log 10 c/mL (43%≥100,000 c/mL); median CD4+ T-cell count was 230 cells/µL (38%<200 cells/µL). In total, 67% (167/251) subjects completed 96 weeks of therapy. At Week 96, 61% of BMS-663068- and 53% of ATV/r-treated subjects had HIV-1 RNA <50 c/mL (mITT; Table). In the observed analysis, 90% of BMS-663068- and 90% of ATV/r-treated subjects had HIV-1 RNA <50 c/mL (Table). Observed virologic response rates for BMS-663068 vs ATV/r by BL VL <100,000 c/mL were 87% vs 95%, respectively, and by BL VL ≥100,000 c/mL were 94% vs 80%, respectively. Mean increase in CD4+ T-cell count from BL through Week 96 was 219 cells/µL for BMS-663068 and 250 cells/µL for ATV/r. BMS-663068 was generally well tolerated and no BMS-663068-related AEs led to discontinuation (D/C). Conclusions: At Week 96, BMS-663068 continued to show similar virologic response rates (mITT and observed) and immunologic reconstitution to ATV/r in TE subjects. BMS- 663068 was generally well tolerated and no BMS-663068-related AEs led to D/C. These results support the ongoing Phase III trial evaluating BMS-663068 in heavily TE adults with limited therapeutic options (≤2 classes of active antiretrovirals remaining) due to resistance, tolerability issues and contraindications (NCT02362503).
