The World Health Organization on Tuesday flagged growing HIV drug resistance against GSK and ViiV Healthcare’s antiretroviral medication Tivicay (dolutegravir), noting that observational and survey data suggest that resistance may now be higher than levels observed in clinical trials.

British drugmaker GSK’s HIV treatment division, ViiV Healthcare, published data on Wednesday showing its long-acting HIV injection is as effective as the market-leading daily pill made by Gilead Sciences Inc.

GSK Chief Executive Emma Walmsley on Wednesday made replenishing the drugmaker’s pipeline of vaccines and therapies her number-one priority. But analysts were disappointed she did not give more details on how she and her management team plan to find the company’s next set of blockbuster drugs.
