Dolutegravir/lamividune FDC submitted to EMA and FDA

Simon Collins, HIV i-Base

On 17 October 2018, ViiV healthcare announced that the dual-drug fixed dose combination FDC) of dolutegravir/lamivudine had been submitted to the US FDA. [1]

Submission is based on results from the phase 3 GEMINI studies in treatment naive participants that were presented at the AIDS 2018 conference in July. [2, 3]

These results showed dolutegravir/3TC to be non-inferior to triple therapy using dolutegravir plus tenofovir-DF/emtricitabine.

The FDA submission included a priority review voucher which shortens the decision timeline to six months. These vouchers are bought and sold by companies and enable a faster review process.

The dolutegravir/lamivudine FDC was also submitted to the EMA on 14 September 2018. [4]
