Trial ID: NCT01497899


The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of elvitegravir/cobicistat/emtricitabine/tenofovir alafenamide (Genvoya®; E/C/F/TAF) fixed-dose combination (FDC) versus elvitegravir/cobicistat/emtricitabine/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (Stribild®; E/C/F/TDF) FDC in HIV-1 infected, antiretroviral treatment-naive adults.

Official Title

A Phase 2, Randomized, Double-Blinded Study of the Safety and Efficacy of Elvitegravir/Cobicistat/Emtricitabine/Tenofovir Alafenamide Single Tablet Regimen Versus Elvitegravir/Cobicistat/Emtricitabine/Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate Single Tablet Regimen in HIV-1 Infected, Antiretroviral Treatment-Naive Adults
