ViiV Healthcare and Janssen Pharmaceutical’s Cabenuva treatment for people living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) received a label update as adult patients now have the option to start the injectable regimen without the need for an oral lead-in period first.
Britain’s GlaxoSmithKline will receive $1.25 billion from Gilead Sciences as part of a settlement between GSK’s HIV medicines unit and the U.S.-based drugmaker, ending a long-drawn patent dispute.
Gilead Sciences Inc. announced new results from the Phase 2/3 CAPELLA trial evaluating lenacapavir, the company’s investigational, long-acting HIV-1 capsid inhibitor, in heavily treatment-experienced people living with multi-drug resistant HIV.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved ViiV Healthcare’s Cabenuva as the only complete long-acting regimen for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in adults.
Once touted as promising treatments and by some even a cure, the World Health Organization dashes those claims, finding no benefit in the use of four popular Covid-19 treatments (remdesivir, hydroxychloroquine, lopinavir, or interferon-beta-1a) on hospitalized patients.
