  Purpose
The primary objective of this study is to compare the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of tenofovir alafenamide (TAF) versus tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) in treatment-naive and treatment-experienced adults with hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg)-positive chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection.

Condition Intervention Phase
HBV Chronic HBV Infection Drug: TAF Drug: TDF Drug: TAF Placebo Drug: TDF Placebo Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 3, Randomized, Double-Blind Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Tenofovir Alafenamide (TAF) 25 mg QD Versus Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate (TDF) 300 mg QD for the Treatment of HBeAg-Positive, Chronic Hepatitis B

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) DNA < 29 IU/mL [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Hepatitis B e Antigen (HBeAg) Seroconversion to Antibody Against Hepatitis B e Antigen (Anti-HBe) at Week 48 [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
  • Percent Change From Baseline in Hip Bone Mineral Density (BMD) at Week 48 [ Time Frame: Baseline; Week 48 ]
  • Percent Change From Baseline in Spine BMD at Week 48 [ Time Frame: Baseline; Week 48 ]
  • Change From Baseline at Week 48 in Serum Creatinine [ Time Frame: Baseline; Week 48 ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Treatment-emergent Proteinuria by Urinalysis (Dipstick) Through Week 48 [ Time Frame: Up to 48 weeks ]
    Grades 1 (mild), 2 (moderate), and 3 (severe) were the highest treatment-emergent postbaseline grades for urine protein using the dipstick method.

Detailed Description:
This study GS-US-320-0110 is an international study planned to enroll participants in global countries, including China. However, due to the review timeline difference in China, full enrollment was reached in the main study before China was able to participate. Therefore, details for the China cohorts were registered separately (NCT02836249) on ClinicalTrials.gov as these cohorts will not be part of the main study analysis.

Criteria

Key Inclusion Criteria:

  • Ability to understand and sign a written informed consent form, which must be obtained prior to initiation of study procedures
  • Adult males and non-pregnant, non-lactating females
  • Documented evidence of chronic HBV infection
  • HBeAg-positive, chronic hepatitis B with all of the following:

    • HBeAg-positive at screening
    • Screening HBV DNA ≥ 2 x 10^4 IU/mL
    • Screening serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) level > 60 U/L (males) or > 38 U/L (females) and ≤ 10 x the upper limit of the normal range (ULN)
  • Treatment-naive participants (defined as < 12 weeks of oral antiviral treatment with any nucleoside or nucleotide analogue) OR treatment-experienced participants (defined as participants meeting all entry criteria [including HBV DNA and serum ALT criteria] and with ≥ 12 weeks of previous treatment with any nucleoside or nucleotide analogue)
  • Previous treatment with interferon (pegylated or non-pegylated) must have ended at least 6 months prior to the baseline visit
  • Adequate renal function
  • Normal ECG

Key Exclusion Criteria:

  • Females who are breastfeeding
  • Males and females of reproductive potential who are unwilling to use an "effective", protocol specified method(s) of contraception during the study
  • Co-infection with hepatitis C virus, HIV, or hepatitis D virus
  • Evidence of hepatocellular carcinoma

  • Abnormal hematological and biochemical parameters, including aspartate aminotransferase (AST) > 10 x ULN
  • Received solid organ or bone marrow transplant
  • History of malignancy within the past 5 years, with the exception of specific cancers that are cured by surgical resection; individuals under evaluation for possible malignancy are not eligible
  • Currently receiving therapy with immunomodulators (eg, corticosteroids), investigational agents, nephrotoxic agents, or agents capable of modifying renal excretion
  • Individuals receiving ongoing therapy with drugs not to be used with tenofovir alafenamide or tenofovir disoproxil fumarate or individuals with a known hypersensitivity to study drugs, metabolites, or formulation excipients
  • Current alcohol or substance abuse judged by the investigator to potentially interfere with participant compliance
  • Any other clinical condition or prior therapy that, in the opinion of the Investigator, would make the participant unsuitable for the study or unable to comply with dosing requirements

Note: Other protocol defined Inclusion/Exclusion criteria may apply.
