Every 2-Month CABENUVA Is Here1

CABENUVA is administered as 2 intramuscular injections by a healthcare professional every month or every 2 months. Adherence to the dosing schedule is strongly recommended.1

INDICATION
CABENUVA is indicated as a complete regimen for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection in adults to replace the current antiretroviral regimen in those who are virologically suppressed (HIV-1 RNA less than 50 copies per mL) on a stable antiretroviral regimen with no history of treatment failure and with no known or suspected resistance to either cabotegravir or rilpivirine.

HIV-1 RNA <50 copies/mL.1

Prior to initiating treatment with CABENUVA, prescribe cabotegravir and rilpivirine oral tablets, both taken once daily with a meal, for approximately 1 month (at least 28 days), to assess tolerability. Initiation injections should be started on the last day of oral lead-in according to the initiation dosing schedule.1

Transform the Treatment Experience With Every-2-Month CABENUVA

First and only long-acting complete injectable treatment regimen for HIV-1 administered as few as 6 times a year1

Durable virologic suppression through 96 weeks1-4‡
Primary endpoint: proportion of patients with HIV-1 RNA ≥50 copies/mL at Week 48 via FDA Snapshot Algorithm. Proportion of patients with HIV‑1 RNA ≥50 copies/mL at Week 48 was 2% for every-2-month CABENUVA vs 1% for once-monthly CABENUVA (non-inferior treatment difference: 0.8% [95% CI: -0.6, 2.2]) and was 2% for every-2-month CABENUVA vs 1% for once-monthly CABENUVA (non-inferior treatment difference: 1.0% (95% CI: -0.6, 2.5) at Week 96.

Every-2-month CABENUVA was preferred by 9 of 10 trial patients

In a secondary endpoint, at Week 48 in ATLAS-2M, 92% (300/327) of patients preferred every-2-month CABENUVA vs 1% (4/327) who preferred oral cabotegravir and rilpivirine that was taken as the oral lead-in, as required.
These results are descriptive in nature and should not be used to infer clinical significance.

Prior to initiating treatment with CABENUVA, prescribe cabotegravir and rilpivirine oral tablets, both taken once daily with a meal, for approximately 1 month (at least 28 days), to assess tolerability. Initiation injections should start on the last day of oral lead-in according to the initiation dosing schedule.1

HIV-1 RNA <50 copies/mL.1

Based on a phase 3, open-label, non-inferiority trial (ATLAS-2M) in virologically suppressed (HIV-1 RNA <50 copies/mL) adults ≥18 years with HIV-1.2,3 In ATLAS 2-M, patients with prior once-monthly CABENUVA experience (n=391) and patients with no prior once-monthly CABENUVA experience (n=654) were randomized 1:1 to receive either once-monthly CABENUVA (n=523) or every-2-month CABENUVA (n=522).2 Patients transitioning from the ATLAS trial must have been on once-monthly CABENUVA or their current oral regimen for at least 52 weeks and had plasma HIV-1 RNA <50 copies/mL.2 Patients with no prior experience with once-monthly CABENUVA were suppressed for ≥6 months (HIV-1 RNA <50 copies/mL), with suppression defined as HIV-1 RNA <50 copies/mL. Patients with prior once-monthly CABENUVA experience received either 400-mg cabotegravir and 600-mg rilpivirine once-monthly or 600-mg cabotegravir and 900-mg rilpivirine every 2 months. Patients with no prior experience with once-monthly CABENUVA received an oral lead-in regimen and then initiation injections followed by once-monthly or every-2-month injections.2 Patients were excluded if they were pregnant or breastfeeding, had moderate to severe hepatic impairment, or evidence of HBV infection at screening.2 At baseline, the median age was 42 both for patients randomized to every-2-month and once-monthly CABENUVA.2 In both arms, 7% of patients had a CD4+ T-cell count <350 cells/mm3.3 Non-inferiority of CABENUVA would be shown if the upper bound of the 95% CI for the treatment difference was <4%.3

§Patient preference data collected from ATLAS-2M clinical trial participants with no prior experience with long-acting cabotegravir plus rilpivirine randomized to every-2-month CABENUVA who completed a questionnaire assessing their preference for CABENUVA vs cabotegravir and rilpivirine that was taken as the oral lead-in, as required.3

"With CABENUVA I now have 2 months between appointments.

This allows me to say yes to things where I don't really have to worry about taking a pill every day. I look forward to making it to my appointment every 2 months because I get to check in with my medical team and feel like I'm taking care of my health. So, that's important to me."
