A5359: Long-Acting Antiretroviral Therapy in Non-adherent Persons Living with HIV (PLWH)
This four-step study compares Long-Acting (LA) Injectable Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) to standard of care (SOC) oral ART in previously non-adherent individuals.
· Step 1 is the induction phase and all participants receive SOC oral ART. Participants receive financial incentives for meeting study-specified goals.
· Step 2 is the randomization phase and participants are randomized 1:1 to receive LA injectable ART (cabotegravir and rilpivirine injections) or continue on SOC for 52 weeks.
· Step 3 is the crossover/continuation phase. Participants randomized to LA ART will continue that therapy, and eligible SOC participants will cross-over to receive LA ART for 52 weeks.
· Step 4 is the observational phase that switches participants who received at least one LA ART injection and are no longer eligible for injections back to locally sourced SOC oral ART for 52 weeks.
