APRETUDE is the first and only long-acting injectable PrEP option
Significantly Lower Incidence of HIV-1 Infection vs a Daily Oral PrEP (TDF/FTC) Proven in 2 Double-blind Clinical Trials1,2*†
- 69% (P=0.0003) and 90% (P<0.0001) lower incidence of HIV-1 infection in HPTN 083 and HPTN 084
Adherence You can Confirm With as Few as 6 In-office Injections Per Year‡
The Most Diverse and Comprehensive Participant Population in HIV Prevention Trials Conducted to Date1,2*†
- Designed to include the key populations impacted by HIV-11,2
- Trials included cisgender men and transgender women who have sex with men and cisgender women, with the majority under age 30. In the US, trials included Black/African American and Latinx people
*HPTN 083 (N=4566) was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled noninferiority trial of the safety and efficacy of APRETUDE compared with daily oral TDF/FTC for HIV-1 prevention in HIV-1–uninfected men and transgender women who have sex with men and have evidence of high-risk behavior for HIV-1 infection. The primary endpoint was the rate of incident HIV-1 infections among participants randomized to daily oral cabotegravir and intramuscular injections of APRETUDE every 2 months compared with daily oral TDF/FTC (corrected for early stopping). The trial included the prespecified ability to test for superiority of APRETUDE over TDF/FTC. The primary analysis showed a 66% reduction in the risk of acquiring HIV-1 infection, hazard ratio (95% CI) 0.34 (0.18, 0.62). Further testing revealed 1 of the infections on APRETUDE to be prevalent, yielding a 69% reduction in the risk of HIV-1 incident infection relative to TDF/FTC, hazard ratio (95% CI) 0.31 (0.16-0.58); incidence rate 0.37/100 person-years vs 1.22/100 person-years for TDF/FTC.
†HPTN 084 (N=3224) was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled superiority trial of the safety and efficacy of APRETUDE compared with daily oral TDF/FTC for HIV-1 prevention in adult, uninfected cisgender women at risk of acquiring HIV-1. The primary endpoint was the rate of incident HIV-1 infections among participants randomized to oral cabotegravir and injections of APRETUDE compared with oral TDF/FTC (corrected for early stopping). The primary analysis showed an 88% reduction in the risk of acquiring HIV-1 infection, hazard ratio (95% CI) 0.12 (0.05, 0.31). Further testing revealed 1 of the infections on APRETUDE to be prevalent, yielding a 90% reduction in the risk of HIV-1 incident infection relative to TDF/FTC, hazard ratio (95% CI) 0.10 (0.04-0.27); APRETUDE incidence rate 0.15/100 person-years vs 1.85/100 person-years for TDF/FTC.

"With CABENUVA injections, I feel a sense of independence from not having to take a pill at the same time every day and fearing that I missed it.
Instead of stressing about daily treatment, I can focus on treatment once a month. Even though it's just a few seconds a day to take a pill, I now don't have to remember to take my HIV treatment until my next appointment."
