SEATTLE -- A long-acting, injectable combination of the novel integrase inhibitor cabotegravir (CAB) and the second-generation nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor rilpivirine (RPV) was noninferior to dolutegravir/abacavir/lamivudine (DTG/ABC/3TC) in one phase 3 study (FLAIR) and to three-drug oral antiretroviral therapy (ART) more broadly in the companion ATLAS phase 3 study.
