The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of 48-week study intervention with JNJ-73763989+JNJ-56136379+nucleos(t)ide analog (NA) regimen compared to NA alone assessed by HBsAg levels. This study is part of HepB Wings Platform Trial (PLATFORMPAHPB2001).


Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a small deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) virus that infects the liver and can cause either acute or chronic infection. It consists of a so-called nucleocapsid in which viral DNA is packed with hepatitis B core protein (HBc) and membranous envelope containing hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg). Chronic HBV infection may lead to serious illnesses like cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Oral treatment with NAs is effective at suppressing viral DNA formation and lowering virus concentration in blood to levels below lower limit of quantification (LLOQ). JNJ-73763989 is a liver-targeted antiviral therapeutic for subcutaneous injection designed to treat chronic HBV infection via ribonucleic acid interference mechanism but rarely lead to functional cure defined as sustained loss of HBs Ag and HBV DNA in serum. JNJ-56136379 is an orally administered capsid assembly modulator that is being developed for treatment of chronic HBV infection. The aim of study is to evaluate efficacy of 48-week study intervention with JNJ-3989+JNJ-6379+NA regimen compared to NA alone, assessed by HBsAg seroclearance at Week 72 (i.e., 24 weeks after completion of all study interventions at Week 48) without restarting NA treatment in HBeAg negative virologically suppressed chronic hepatitis B (CHB) infected participants who received NA treatment for at least 2 years prior to screening. The study will be 2.3 years and will be conducted in 3 phases: a screening phase (4 weeks), a study intervention phase (48 weeks), and a follow-up phase (48 weeks). Safety will be evaluated by AEs including AEs of special interest to any of the study interventions, clinical laboratory tests, ECGs, vital signs, and physical examinations.
