Gilead Sciences Inc. (NASDAQ: GILD) News:
Viread® for Hepatitis B Maintains Antiviral Suppression with No Development of Resistance Through Four Years of Treatment
“Gilead Sciences, Inc. today announced new data from the open-label phase of two pivotal Phase III clinical trials (Studies 102 and 103) evaluating the four-year efficacy of Viread® (tenofovir disoproxil fumarate) for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. Significantly, no resistance to Viread emerged over 192 weeks of treatment, and 10.8 percent of patients receiving Viread in Study 103 (HBeAg-positive) for four years experienced surface, or “s”, antigen (HBsAg) loss, which is a marker of the resolution of chronic HBV infection. Additional data from these studies and from Study 106 show the durable antiviral efficacy of Viread among several key patient subpopulations, including patients with high baseline viral levels, individuals of Asian descent and treatment-experienced patients. These findings are being presented at the 61st annual meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (The Liver Meeting 2010) in Boston.”
