Research and Clinical Trials

Brief Description  
HIV treatment-naïve study to evaluate safety and efficacy of a fixed dose combination (FDC) containing GS-9883/emtricitabine/tenofovir alafenamide (GS-9883/F/TAF) versus a FDC containing abacavir/dolutegravir/lamivudine (ABC/DTG/3TC) in HIV-1 infected, antiretroviral treatment naïve-adult subjects. This is a 96 week study.
