Are you eligible to participate in this study?

You may be eligible for this study if you meet the following criteria:

  • Conditions: HIV-1/HBV Co-Infection
  • Age: Between 18 - 100 Years
  • Gender: Male or Female

Key Inclusion Criteria:

  • HIV-1 co-infection:
  • Must be HIV antiretroviral treatment naive with plasma HIV-1 RNA 500 copies/mL at screening
  • 10 days of prior therapy with any antiretroviral agent, including lamivudine and entecavir, following a diagnosis of HIV-1 infection (except the use for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) or post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP), up to one month prior to screening)
  • Screening genotype report must show sensitivity to emtricitabine (FTC) and tenofovir (TFV). This report will be provided by Gilead Sciences. Alternatively, if genotype results from a local laboratory obtained 90 days prior to screening visit date show sensitivity to these drugs, this genotype will be acceptable to fulfill this inclusion criterion in the event that the genotype obtained at screening is not yet available and all other inclusion/exclusion criteria have been confirmed
  • HBV co-infection:
  • Must be HBV treatment naive (defined as < 12 weeks of oral antiviral treatment)
  • Screening HBV DNA 2000 IU/mL
  • Hepatic transaminases (aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and ALT) 10 x upper limit of normal (ULN)
  • Total bilirubin 2.5 x ULN

Key Exclusion Criteria:

  • Hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibody positive and HCV RNA detectable
  • Individuals experiencing decompensated cirrhosis (eg, ascites, encephalopathy, or variceal bleeding) or with Child-Pugh-Turcotte (CPT) C impairment
  • Current alcohol or substance use judged by the Investigator to potentially interfere with study compliance
  • Active, serious infections (other than HIV-1 and HBV infection) requiring parenteral antibiotic or antifungal therapy within 30 days prior to Day 1
  • Participation in any other clinical trial, including observational studies, without prior approval from the sponsor is prohibited while participating in this trial

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