What are the benefits of this drug?

In patients with HIV-1 infection, BIKTARVY decreases viral load (number of HIV-1 copies in the blood) and increases the number of immune cells in the blood (CD4 count).

Were there any differences in how well the drug worked in clinical trials among sex, race and age?

  • Sex: BIKTARVY worked similarly in men and women.
  • Race: BIKTARVY worked similarly in White and Black or African American patients. The number of patients in other races was small; therefore, differences in how the drug worked in other races could not be determined.
