October 12, 2022 (press release) –

  • First presentation of RSV Older Adult vaccine candidate's pivotal phase III efficacy and safety data

  • New data showing Shingrix efficacy and safety over ten years

  • Results on implementation of long-acting HIV treatment, Vocabria/Rekambys, in clinical setting

  • Breadth of data presented demonstrates GSK's expertise and commitment to preventing and treating infectious diseases

GSK plc (LSE/NYSE: GSK) will share updates on its industry-leading infectious disease pipeline and portfolio with 33 abstracts accepted for the Infectious Disease Society of America's IDWeek 2022 annual meeting in Washington, DC , US from 19-23 October 2022 . This will include the first presentation of the results from the 25,000-participant pivotal AReSVi-006 phase III trial which is investigating the efficacy and safety of GSK's respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) vaccine candidate for adults aged 60 years and above. The abstract summarising the efficacy data from AReSVi-006 has been accepted for oral presentation on 20 October 2022 at 1.45pm ET .

Reinforcing the strength of GSK's portfolio of vaccines, data from an extension study exploring the efficacy and safety of Shingrix over ten years will also be shared for the first time, providing further evidence on the duration of protection for adults aged 50 years and over. This long-term follow-up study from two previous phase III clinical trials (ZOE-50 and ZOE-70), which initially demonstrated up to 97% efficacy[1], [2], [3]in adults aged 50 years and older, will be presented on 20 October 2022 at 12.15pm ET .

Submissions also include presentations from ViiV Healthcare , the global specialist HIV company majority-owned by GSK, with Pfizer, Inc. and Shionogi & Co., Ltd. as shareholders, which will consist of abstracts from the company's diverse portfolio of innovative licensed treatment and prevention options. ViiV Healthcare will share results from its pioneering implementation science program that aims to identify successful methods of integrating its medicines for HIV treatment in the clinical setting. The CARISEL study evaluates the best approaches to implementing Vocabria/Rekambys (cabotegravir, rilpivirine; marketed as Cabenuva in the US) administered every two months into clinical practice in Europe . Clinical results will be presented at IDWeek followed by primary results of the study at HIV Glasgow.

Tony Wood , Chief Scientific Officer, GSK said: "We are proud to share new and exciting data from across our infectious disease portfolio at this year's IDWeek 2022 - leading with our RSV vaccine candidate for older adults, long-term data on Shingrix to prevent shingles, and implementation data and real-world evidence from our established HIV treatment portfolio. Discovering and developing innovative vaccines and medicines against infectious diseases is a key focus for us, and our longstanding expertise means we are uniquely placed to help protect people."

GSK ID Week data summary

In addition to the pivotal phase III efficacy data, GSK will share three additional abstracts for its RSV OA vaccine candidate. One from a trial exploring co-administration of the RSV OA vaccine candidate with flu vaccination, and two from a phase III immunogenicity and safety trial.

A further 17 abstracts by ViiV Healthcare have been accepted as poster and oral presentations, including data from the OPERA cohort comparing real-world safety and effectiveness data in virologically suppressed adults taking Dovato (dolutegravir, lamivudine) with those taking a bictegravir- or dolutegravir-based 3-drug regimen.[4]

Four abstracts have been accepted as poster presentations on Xevudy (sotrovimab), including data from the Fair Health study, a retrospective claims database analysis of high-risk patients with COVID-19.

Another six abstracts have been accepted as poster presentations for gepotidacin, a potential first-in-class antibiotic.

GSK and ViiV Healthcare sponsored and supported studies to be presented at ID Week 2022 include:

[3]ZOE-50 and ZOE-70 are placebo-controlled trials with two doses of recombinant zoster vaccine (RZV) two months apart. Vaccine efficacy (VE) was assessed in the modified Total Vaccinated Cohort (mTVC) of 7277 participants, i.e. excluding adults who did not receive second dose of vaccine or who had confirmed diagnosis of herpes zoster (HZ) ≤1 month after second dose. Data in subjects ≥70 years old were from pre-specified pooled analyses of ZOE-50/70, as these provide robust estimates for VE. HZ cases in RZV vs. placebo: ≥50 years (ZOE-50; median follow-up of 3.1 years): 6/7344 vs. 210/7415 and ≥70 years (pooled analysis ZOE-50 & ZOE-70; median follow-up of 4 years): 25/8250 vs. 284/8346 cases
