Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Patients With Plasma Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) RiboNucleic Acid (RNA) <50 Copies/mL at Week 24 [ Time Frame: 24 Weeks ]
  • Number of Patients With Clinical Adverse Experiences (CAEs) Through 24 Weeks [ Time Frame: 24 Week last patient last visit ]
  • Mean Percent Change From Baseline in Fasting Serum Cholesterol at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 12 ]
  • Mean Percent Change From Baseline in Non-high-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (Non-HDL-C) at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 12 ]
  • Mean Percent Change From Baseline in Fasting Serum Low-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C) at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 12 ]
  • Mean Percent Change From Baseline in Fasting Serum High-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C) at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 12 ]
  • Median Percent Change From Baseline in Serum Triglyceride at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 12 ]
    Standard Deviation (Robust): calculated as interquartile range (IQR)/1.075, where IQR=3rd quartile-1st quartile.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Percent Change From Baseline in Fasting Serum Cholesterol at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24 ]
  • Mean Percent Change From Baseline in Non-high-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (Non-HDL-C) at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24 ]
  • Mean Percent Change From Baseline in Fasting Serum Low-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C) at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24 ]
  • Mean Percent Change From Baseline in Fasting Serum High-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C) at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24 ]
  • Median Percent Change From Baseline in Serum Triglyceride at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24 ]
    Standard Deviation (Robust): calculated as interquartile range (IQR)/1.075, where IQR=3rd quartile-1st quartile.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Patients With Serious CAEs Through 24 Weeks [ Time Frame: 24 Week last patient last visit ]
    Serious CAEs are any AEs occurring at any dose that; results in death; or is life threatening; or results in a persistent or significant disability/incapacity; or results in or prolongs an existing inpatient hospitalization; or is a congenital anomaly/birth defect; or is a cancer; or is an overdose

  • Number of Patients With Drug-related CAEs Through 24 Weeks [ Time Frame: 24 Week last patient last visit ]
    Patients with drug-related (as assessed by an investigator who is a qualified physician, according to his/her best clinical judgement) CAEs.

  • Number of Patients With Serious Drug-related CAEs Through 24 Weeks [ Time Frame: 24 Week last patient last visit ]
    Serious CAEs are any AEs occurring at any dose that; results in death; or is life threatening; or results in a persistent or significant disability/incapacity; or results in or prolongs an existing inpatient hospitalization; or is a congenital anomaly/birth defect; or is a cancer; or is an overdose. Drug-related are as assessed by an investigator who is a qualified physician, according to his/her best clinical judgement

  • Number of Patients That Died by 24 Week Last Patient Last Visit [ Time Frame: 24 Week last patient last visit ]
  • Number of Patients That Discontinued Due to CAEs Through 24 Weeks [ Time Frame: 24 Week last patient last visit ]
  • Number of Patients With Laboratory Adverse Experiences (LAEs) Through 24 Weeks [ Time Frame: 24 Week last patient last visit ]
  • Number of Patients With Drug-related LAEs Through 24 Weeks [ Time Frame: 24 Week last patient last visit ]
  • Number of Patients With Serious LAEs Through 24 Weeks [ Time Frame: 24 Week last patient last visit ]
    Serious LAEs are any LAEs occurring at any dose that; results in death; or is life threatening; or results in a persistent or significant disability/incapacity; or results in or prolongs an existing inpatient hospitalization; or is a congenital anomaly/birth defect; or is a cancer; or is an overdose

  • Number of Patients That Discontinued Due to LAEs Through 24 Weeks [ Time Frame: 24 Week last patient last visit ]
