The purpose of this study is to compare the safety, tolerability and efficacy of a regimen containing once-daily ritonavir-boosted elvitegravir or twice-daily raltegravir added to a background regimen in HIV-1 infected, antiretroviral treatment-experienced adults who have documented resistance, or at least six months experience prior to screening with two or more different classes of antiretroviral agents.

Detailed Description:

This is a double-blind, double-dummy, multicenter, randomized, active-controlled 96-week study to assess the safety and efficacy of a regimen containing ritonavir-boosted elvitegravir versus raltegravir, each administered with a background regimen (BR) containing a fully-active ritonavir-boosted protease inhibitor (PI) and a second single agent in HIV-1 infected, antiretroviral treatment-experienced adults. Subjects will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to one of the following two treatment arms:

  • Treatment Arm 1: Ritonavir-boosted elvitegravir 150 mg QD (ritonavir-boosted elvitegravir 85 mg QD for subjects taking atazanavir/r or lopinavir/r as part of their BR) + BR (N = 350)
  • Treatment Arm 2: Raltegravir 400 mg BID + BR (N = 350)

Due to known pharmacokinetic interactions, subjects who are taking atazanavir/r (ATV/r) or lopinavir/r (LPV/r) as part of their BR will receive elvitegravir 85 mg if randomized to Treatment Arm 1.

The BR shall be constructed by the investigator based on viral resistance testing and shall be composed of a fully-active ritonavir-boosted PI and a second single agent.

The fully-active PI is defined by phenotypic resistance analysis. For phenotypic susceptibility, fully active is defined as being below the lower clinical or biological cutoff. The following ritonavir-boosted PIs are allowed to be prescribed by the investigator as part of the BR: atazanavir/r, darunavir/r, fosamprenavir/r, lopinavir/r, or tipranavir/r. Subjects must take their ritonavir dose based on the dosing schedule indicated in the prescribing information for the PI; no additional ritonavir is required to be taken with elvitegravir. No other marketed PIs will be allowed as part of the BR due to unknown pharmacokinetic interactions.

The second single agent may or may not be fully-active and can be one nucleoside or nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI), etravirine, maraviroc, or T-20. However, the second single agent must not include an integrase inhibitor; the non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTI) efavirenz, nevirapine, or delavirdine (due to unknown pharmacokinetic interactions); or fixed-dose combination antiretroviral therapies.

After Week 96, subjects will continue to take their blinded study drug and attend visits until treatment assignments have been unblinded, at which point they will all be given the option to participate in an open label elvitegravir extension phase of the study.
