16:34 EDTGILDGilead announces Phase 1 data for GS-6615
Gilead Sciences announced results from a Phase 1 clinical trial of GS-6615, an investigational, selective late sodium current inhibitor, showing a shortening of the QTc interval in patients with long QT-3 syndrome. LQT3 is a genetic disorder that prolongs the heartís QTc interval and can cause life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias. Results from this study will be presented today in San Francisco at the annual meeting of the Heart Rhythm Society. The congenital long QT syndromes are a group of inherited disorders that affect the heartís electrical system and are characterized by irregular or rapid heartbeats that can lead to syncope, cardiac arrest or sudden cardiac death. Normal QTc intervals range from 380-460 milliseconds and LQTS patients typically have a QTc above 470 ms. LQTS symptoms can occur during strenuous exercise, emotional stimulation or sleep. The most common types are LQT1, LQT2 and LQT3. LQT3 is linked to a mutation in the gene encoding the cardiac sodium channel. Currently, there are no approved medications for patients with LQT3. In this study, ten LQT3 patients were evaluated at the Clinical Research Center at the University of Rochester, where they received single oral doses of GS-6615 ranging from 10 mg to 60 mg. The study enrolled patients with a QTc above 480 ms. The QTc pre-dose was compared to QTc on drug during time-matched 12-hour periods. In the study, QTc shortening was observed at all dose levels, with maximal QTc shortening ranging from -44 ms to -80 ms. No safety concerns were observed during administration with GS-6615. Based on these results, Gilead plans to initiate a Phase 2 study of GS-6615 in LQT3 patients later this year. Additionally, based on pre-clinical data for GS-6615 and clinical data involving the role of late sodium current inhibition in other cardiovascular diseases, Gilead plans to initiate Phase 2 clinical trials in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation.

19:09 EDTGILDGilead announces Phase 3 results for once-daily single tablet HIV regimen
Gilead Sciences announced detailed 48-week results from two Phase 3 studies, Studies 104 and 111, evaluating its investigational once-daily single tablet regimen containing tenofovir alafenamide, or TAF, for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in treatment-naÔve adults. A regimen of elvitegravir 150 mg, cobicistat 150 mg, emtricitabine 200 mg and TAF 10 mg was found to be statistically non-inferior to Gileadís Stribild, containing elvitegravir 150 mg, cobicistat 150 mg, emtricitabine 200 mg and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300 mg, based on percentages of patients with HIV-1 RNA levels less than 50 copies/mL. A second analysis found that patients receiving the TAF regimen also had significantly better renal and bone laboratory parameters than those treated with Stribild. The data were presented in two late-breaker presentations at the 22nd Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in Seattle.
