Purpose

The First Long-Acting Injectable Regimen (FLAIR) study is being conducted to establish if human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV-1) infected adult participants whose virus is virologically suppressed on an integrase inhibitor single tablet regimen (INI STR) will remain suppressed after switching to a two-drug intramuscular (IM) long-acting (LA) regimen of cabotegravir (CAB) and rilpivirine (RPV). In this study, the INI STR will be limited to abacavir/dolutegravir/lamivudine (ABC/DTG/3TC). FLAIR is a Phase 3, multi-phase, randomized, open label, active-controlled, multicenter, parallel-group, non-inferiority study in HIV-1, anti-retroviral therapy (ART)-naïve adult participants. This study is designed to demonstrate the non-inferior antiviral activity of switching to a two drug CAB LA 400 mg + RPV LA 600 mg regimen every 4 weeks (Q4W: monthly) compared to remaining on ABC/DTG/3TC over 48 weeks (4 weeks oral CAB + RPV, 44 weeks LA therapy). Participants who are HLA-B*5701 positive at Screening may enroll into the study and receive DTG plus a non-abacavir containing dual nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) regimen. Eligible participants will enroll into the Induction Phase of the study and receive ABC/DTG/3TC for 20 weeks (Week [-20] to Day 1). Participants who have an HIV 1 ribose nucleic acid (RNA) <50 copies per milliliter (c/mL) at Week (-4) will be randomized (1:1) into the Maintenance Phase at Day 1 to either continue ABC/DTG/3TC or to discontinue ABC/DTG/3TC and begin oral therapy with CAB 30 mg + RPV 25 mg once daily for approximately 4 Weeks, followed by monthly CAB LA + RPV LA injections from visit Week 4b until study completion or withdrawal. Participants who successfully complete Week 100 (without meeting study defined withdrawal criteria and who remain virologically suppressed through Week 96: HIV-1 RNA <50 c/mL) will be given the option to switch to the LA arm in the Extension Phase (using an optional oral lead-in with CAB + RPV) or be withdrawn from the study. Participants will continue to receive injections every 4 weeks during the Extension Phase until CAB LA and RPV LA are either locally approved and commercially available, the participant no longer derives clinical benefit, the participant meets a protocol-defined reason for discontinuation, or until development of either CAB LA or RPV LA is terminated.

  • Change From Baseline in Life Satisfaction (LISAT) Using HIV/AIDs-targeted Quality of Life (HATQoL) Questionnaire [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) and at Weeks 24 and 48 ]
    The HATQoL questionnaire was used to assess health related QoL (HRQoL). It comprises of three dimensions: life satisfaction (LISAT), medication worries (MEDWO) and disclosure worries (DISWO). For LISAT domain, each question is scored as 1-5, where 5 corresponds to satisfaction 'all of time' and 1 as 'none of time'. Total score for the LISAT domain (sum of item scores for questions 1a to 1d) is transformed to a 0-100 scale using formula:[100 divided by (20 minus 4)]*(raw total score for LISAT minus 4). Higher the LISAT score, greater satisfaction to life. Transformed dimension score for each domain was summarized and analyzed. LOCF was used as primary method of analysis. Measure type was considered as mean for adjusted mean and dispersion measure as 95% CI. Baseline value is defined as the last available value up to and including the date of first Maintenance phase dose of IP. Change from Baseline value is calculated as value at post-dose visit minus Baseline value.

Higher MEDWO scores correspond to lower medication worries. Transformed dimension score for each domain was summarized and analyzed. LOCF was used as primary method of analysis. Measure type was considered as mean for adjusted mean and dispersion measure as 95% CI. Baseline value is defined as the last available value up to and including the date of first Maintenance phase dose of IP. Change from Baseline value is calculated as value at post-dose visit minus Baseline value.
  • Change From Baseline in DISWO Using HATQoL [ Time Frame: Baseline and at Weeks 24 and 48 ]
    The HATQoL questionnaire was used to assess HRQoL. It comprises of three dimensions: LISAT, MEDWO and DISWO.

The total score for the DISWO domain (sum of item scores for questions 3a to 3e) is transformed to a 0-100 scale using formula: [100 divided by (25 minus 5)]* (raw total score for DISWO minus 5). Higher DISWO total scores correspond to lower disclosure worries. Transformed dimension score for each domain was summarized and analyzed. LOCF was used as primary method of analysis. Measure type was considered as mean for adjusted mean and dispersion measure as 95% CI. Baseline value is defined as the last available value up to and including the date of first Maintenance phase dose of IP. Change from Baseline value is calculated as value at post-dose visit minus Baseline value.

    HIVTSQs (status version) total treatment satisfaction score is computed with 1-11 items. Items 1-11 are summed to produce score with possible range of 0 to 66. Higher the score, greater improvement in satisfaction with treatment; lower score, greater the deterioration in satisfaction with treatment. A score of 0 represents no change. LOCF was primary method of analysis. Baseline value is defined as the last available value up to and including the date of first Maintenance phase dose of IP. Change from Baseline value is calculated as value at post-dose visit minus Baseline value. Adjusted mean and 95% CI of adjusted mean values has been presented.

    HIVTSQc (change version) total treatment satisfaction score is computed with 1-11 items. Items 1-11 are summed to produce score with possible range:-33 to 33. Higher scores represent greater improvement in treatment satisfaction compared to satisfaction with treatment received during the induction phase; lower scores representedeterioration in satisfaction with treatment. A score of 0 represents no change. LOCF was primary method of analysis. Baseline value is defined as the last available value up to and including the date of first Maintenance phase dose of IP. Change from Baseline value is calculated as value at post-dose visit minus Baseline value.

    HIVTSQs (status version) is a 12 item questionnaire. The individual item scores are ratedas 6 (very satisfied, convenient, flexible, etc.) to 0 (very dissatisfied, inconvenient, inflexible, etc.). Higher scores represent greater treatment satisfaction as compared to the past few weeks. LOCF was used as primary method of analysis. Baseline value is defined as the last available value up to and including the date of first Maintenance phase dose of IP. Change from Baseline value is calculated as the value at the post-dose visit minus the Baseline value.
  • Change From Baseline in Treatment Acceptance at Weeks 8, 24 and 48 Using "General Acceptance" Dimension of the Chronic Treatment Acceptance (ACCEPT) Questionnaire [ Time Frame: Baseline and at Weeks 8, 24 and 48 ]

It consists 25 items, capturing six dimensions. 3 questions focusing on general acceptance of study medication were analyzed. Items scores are rated as 1-5 :1-totally disagree,2-somewhat disagree,3-somewhat agree,4-totally agree and 5-I don't know. The acceptance domain score (ranging from 0 to 100) is calculated using the following formula:100*(mean of recoded items in dimension minus 1) divided by 2.LOCF was primary method of analysis. Measure type is mean for adjusted mean and dispersion measure: 95% CI. Baseline value is defined as the last available value up to and including the date of first Maintenance phase dose of IP. Change from Baseline value is calculated as value at post-dose visit minus Baseline value.
  • Change From 4b in Tolerability of Injection at Weeks 5, 40 and 41 Using Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) Within CAB LA+RPV LA Arm [ Time Frame: Weeks 4b, 5, 40 and 41 ]
