Program abstract
Background: Efficacious and safe antiretroviral regimens are needed for HIV-infected patients with diabetes. Tenofovir alafenamide (TAF) has 90% lower plasma tenofovir levels compared to TDF, and has no effect on renal tubular function. Study 112 assessed the safety and efficacy of a single tablet regimen of elvitegravir, cobicistat, emtricitabine, and TAF (E/C/F/TAF) in HIV-1 infected adults with renal impairment from multiple causes. Outcomes in diabetics have not been reported.
Methods: 242 virologically suppressed adults with stable renal impairment (eGFRCG 30 to 69 mL/min) had their treatment switched to once-daily E/C/F/TAF. Week 96 safety results for patients with diabetes are presented.
Results: 33/242 (14%) who switched to E/C/F/TAF had diabetes. At baseline, more diabetic patients were of black race (33% vs 16%) and had hypertension (58% vs 36%). At Week 96 week, 94% of diabetics remained virologically suppressed. Estimates of glomerular function among diabetics remained stable: median change from baseline eGFRCKD-EPI sCr 0.0 mL/min/1.73m2 (p=0.86), and eGFRCKD-EPI cys C +0.5 mL/min/1.73m2 (p=0.97). Tubular proteinuria improved significantly for diabetic subjects switching to E/C/F/TAF (retinol binding protein:Cr, median % change -68, p=0.048; beta-2-microglobulin:Cr, median % change, -82, p<0.001), while decreases in median total proteinuria (UPCR, -28%, p=0.077) and albuminuria (UACR, -42%, p=0.50) were not significant. One diabetic subject discontinued therapy due to eGFR decline below 30 mL/min without evidence of tubulopathy.
Conclusions: HIV-infected patients with renal impairment (eGFR 30 to 69 mL/min) and diabetes who switched to once daily single-tablet E/C/F/TAF had durable virologic suppression and positive renal outcomes after two years. These data support the use of E/C/F/TAF as a potent and safe regimen for diabetic adults with impaired renal function.
