16:33 EDTJNJGilead submits NDA to FDA for single tablet regimen for HIV containing R/F/TAF
Gilead Sciences (GILD) announced that it has submitted a New Drug Application, or NDA, to the FDA for an investigational, once-daily single tablet regimen that combines Gileadís emtricitabine 200 mg and tenofovir alafenamide, or TAF, 25 mg with rilpivirine 25 mg, or R/F/TAF, from Janssen Sciences Ireland UC, one of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in adult and pediatric patients 12 years of age and older. The data submitted in the NDA support the use of R/F/TAF among patients who are HIV treatment-naÔve or who are virologically suppressed and want to replace their current antiretroviral treatment regimen. A Priority Review voucher acquired from Knight Therapeutics in November 2014 was submitted to the FDA along with the R/F/TAF NDA. Under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act, or PDUFA, the anticipated target action date for the R/F/TAF NDA is six months after the FDAís acceptance of the filing. TAF is a novel, investigational nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitor, or NRTI, that has demonstrated high antiviral efficacy at a dose less than one-tenth that of Gileadís Viread, as well as improved renal and bone laboratory parameters as compared to TDF in clinical trials in combination with other antiretroviral agents. In addition to R/F/TAF, two other TAF-based HIV treatments are also under FDA review.
