Specialists are Highly Satisfied with the Safety and Efficacy of Atripla and Isentress in the Treatment of HIV Patients
Date:3/11/2009

A CCR5 Antagonist That is Dosed Once Daily Could Earn an 18 Percent Patient Share in the U.S. and a 30 Percent Patient Share in Europe, According to a New Report from Decision Resources

WALTHAM, Mass., March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that surveyed infectious disease specialists identify a therapy's effect on the ability to achieve viral load suppression in treatment-naive patients as the attribute that most influences their prescribing decisions in HIV. Surveyed specialists indicate they are highly satisfied with Gilead/Bristol Myers Squibb's Atripla and Merck's Isentress in this attribute.

The new report entitled HIV: Opportunity lies for Drug Developers in Integrase Inhibitors and Next Generation CCR5 Antagonists finds that a novel drug in the CCR5 antagonist class that is dosed once daily and achieves maximum physician expectations would earn an 18 percent patient share in HIV in the United States and a 30 percent patient share in Europe, according to surveyed U.S. and European infectious disease specialists.

In 2008, Decision Resources' proprietary clinical gold standard for HIV was Merck's Isentress/Gilead's Truvada. Based on expert opinion, Isentress/Truvada will retain clinical gold standard status through 2017, owing to its balance of efficacy, novel mechanisms of action and safety. Although some therapies in development for HIV hold promise, most have efficacy, safety and tolerability, and/or delivery features that interviewed thought leaders believe are inferior when compared with Isentress/Truvada.

"Experts we surveyed rated Isentress plus Truvada as one of the safest antiretroviral regimens available," said Decision Resources Analyst Jose Avalos, Ph.D. "Furthermore, interviewed specialists believe Isentress' novel mechanism of action provides advantages in highly treatment experienced patients."
