Long-term Study on Anti-HBV Effect of Tenofovir and Resistance Surveillance in Asian-American Adult Patients
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
This is a Phase IV, open-label, single-arm, 96 week community-based observational study evaluating the antiviral efficacy, safety, and tolerability of TDF in HBV mono-infected Asian-American adults who had completed 48 week treatment with Tenofovir in Gilead 174-0123 study. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the long-term antiviral efficacy of tenofovir DF 300 mg once daily in these patients. The secondary objectives are to evaluate the safety and tolerability of TDF including the biochemical and virological responses to TDF, the incidence of drug resistance mutations in these patients The duration of treatment in this study is total of three Years (144 weeks) on TDF.

Sexes Eligible for Study:
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
adult infected with chronic hepatitis B
Male or female, Asian-American, who have participated and completed the study, qualify the following criteria, and remain on TDF treatment without severe treatment-related AEs, and with available retrospective lab results as summarized in Appendix 2.
18 through 75 years of age, inclusive
Willing to participate in the present study and able to provide written informed consent
Continuation of HBV treatment is indicated. That is for HBeAg-positive subjects, HBeAg remain positive or HBeAg becomes negative but still has detectable DNA by the PCR method; and for HBeAg-negative subjects, HBV DNA is either detectable or undetectable by the PCR method
No clinical or virologic evidence of anti-HBV resistance to TDF treatment at the time of entering tests (i.e., TDF treatment week 48 lab tests by the 123 study)
Estimated glomerular filtration rate (creatinine clearance) ≥ 60 mL/min/1.73m2 by the
(140-age in years) (body weight [kg]) (72) (serum creatinine [mg/dl]) [Note: multiply estimated rate 0. by 85 for women; use actual body weight]
