Gilead Announces Latest Data in Ongoing HIV Cure Research Program23.7.2019 20:00:00 CESTPress release

Gilead Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: GILD) today presented results from two studies of investigational toll-like receptor 7 (TLR7) agonists as part of an HIV cure research program. The Phase 1 and preclinical study results demonstrate that the TLR7 agonists vesatolimod (GS-9620) and GS-986 can induce immune activation and follow earlier preclinical research suggesting that TLR7 agonists can potentially lead to viral remission, as part of combination regimens. The HIV viral reservoir is present even in virologically suppressed individuals and its elimination is regarded as a main obstacle to achieving a cure. The data were presented at the 10th International AIDS Society Conference on HIV Science (IAS 2019) being held in Mexico City. “While treatments have improved dramatically, people living with HIV still face a lifetime of therapy and potential complications. That reality drives our ongoing pursuit of a cure for HIV,” said Diana Brainard, MD, Senior Vice President, HIV and Emerging Viruses
