    Should cabotegravir be licensed for PrEP in gay men and trans women right away on the basis of HPTN083 results, or wait until HPTN084 gives an answer for cis women? Can we learn something from the F/TAF experience (label for MSM and transwomen and post-marketing commitment to do a trial in cis women)?

      They usually need more than one efficacy trial to licence a drug.

      However considering the different populations, CAB LA could be licensed for MSM and trans women, then the label updated to include cis women when the results become available.

    Am wondering after these results if participants will continue using oral TDF/FTC instead of CAB LA regimen as long as both medications are available.

    Also, there’s a webinar today to discuss 083 results. Details:


    The HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN) invites you to join a community webinar to learn the primary results of HPTN 083, a global randomized, controlled, double-blinded study that compared the safety and efficacy of long-acting injectable cabotegravir (CAB LA) to daily oral tenofovir/emtricitabine (TDF/FTC) (Truvada) for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). The study showed that a PrEP regimen containing CAB LA was superior to oral TDF/FTC for the prevention of HIV acquisition among cisgender men and transgender women who have sex with men.
