TRIAL DESCRIPTION
Public title CAPRISA 018 TAF Implant Trial
Official scientific title A phase I/II trial to assess the safety, acceptability, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of a sustained-release tenofovir alafenamide sub-dermal implant for HIV prevention in women
Brief summary describing the background and objectives of the trial This is a phase I/II trial of a 110mg TAF sub-dermal implant releasing approximately 0.25mg per day. This implant combines two well-established elements; a) TAF, which is a licenced antiretroviral drug widely used in HIV treatment, and b) a sub-dermal implant, which is widely used as a route of administration for contraception. The primary objective of the CAPRISA 018 trial is to evaluate the safety of the sustained-release TAF 120mg sub-dermal implant/s in HIV uninfected young women at low risk for HIV acquisition.

INTERVENTIONS
Intervention type Intervention name Dose Duration Intervention description Group size Nature of control
Experimental Group tenofovir alafenamide TAF 110mg is formulated in a sub-dermal implant, releasing a daily dose of 0.25mg. Maximum of 120 weeks (116 weeks on product and 4 weeks off product) A total of 1, 2, 3 or 4 implants will be inserted, in the inside of the upper arm, to achieve and test the target daily release of 0.25mg, 0.5mg, 0.75mg and 1mg of TAF, respectively. The number of implants, implant location and replacement interval for the phase II component of the trial will be determined from the phase I data. The intervention group will receive the TAF impant plus oral placebo tablets 245
Control Group tenofovir disoproxil fumarate and emtricitabine Oral TDF(300mg)/FTC(200mg) tablets daily plus placebo implant Maximum of 120 weeks (116 weeks on product and 4 weeks off product) the control group will include an active comparator product TDF-FTC 300/200mg oral tablets plus a placebo implant 245 Active-Treatment of Control Group

OUTCOMES
Type of outcome Outcome Timepoint(s) at which outcome measured
Primary Outcome Safety as assessed by mean percentage change in creatinine clearance from baseline baseline, week 4, 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 96 and 120
Secondary Outcome non-compartmental PK model Daily for first 7 days post insertion then weekly thereafter until week 8
Secondary Outcome Acceptability - as assesses by participant views on the implant, by summarizing the insertion site reactions, by number of participants who report various insertion site reactions and by summarizing the mean healing time. The same information will be summarized for the placebo arm as the same insertion site reactions are expected as a result of insertion of the placebo implant. Baseline, day 1, week 1, week 4, quarterly thereafter and study exit
Secondary Outcome HIV incidence as assessed by comparing the incidence of HIV in the sustained-release TAF implant (placebo tablet) arm with that in the TDF/FTC (placebo implant) arm baseline, monthly therafter and at study exit
Secondary Outcome HIV viral load When indicated for participants who aquire HIV
Secondary Outcome Frequency of resistance mutations As indicated in participants who acquire HIV
Secondary Outcome Pregnancy rates All visits
