Two Indications, One REMS: FDA Panel Debates Restricted Access For Truvada In PrEP

Executive Summary

FDA did not ask its Antiviral Drugs Advisory Committee whether Gilead’s proposed REMS for pre-exposure prophylaxis should include restricted distribution, but it still got an earful on the subject from some vocal panel members, who said prescribing should be limited only to individuals with documentation of a negative HIV test. Agency staff, however, said such an approach was impractical due to Truvada’s unrestricted availability for HIV treatment.

Truvada For PrEP Approval Reflects Limits Of REMS Assessments

In approving the antiretroviral fixed-dose combination for pre-exposure prophylaxis, FDA is requiring Gilead to gather information about the development of viral resistance and compliance with HIV testing requirements “to the extent possible,” suggesting a willingness to be flexible on REMS assessments when the data may be hard to come by. Further clarity is expected from mandatory post-marketing studies.
