Webinar: HPTN 083 Primary Study Results

The HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN) held a community webinar, on July 16, to present the primary results of HPTN 083, a global randomized, controlled, double-blinded study that compared the safety and efficacy of long-acting injectable cabotegravir (CAB LA) to daily oral tenofovir/emtricitabine (TDF/FTC) (Truvada) for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). The study showed that a PrEP regimen containing CAB LA was superior to oral TDF/FTC for the prevention of HIV acquisition among cisgender men and transgender women who have sex with men.
