HPTN 076 is a multi-site, double-blinded, two-arm study that will evaluate the safety and acceptability of the injectable product, TMC278 LA, in healthy, HIV-uninfected women. TMC278 LA is a long-acting formulation of the drug rilpivirine, which is a US-FDA approved medication used to treat HIV. This study will be an important step in determining if TMC278 LA can be administered as an injectable PrEP, and be studied further to see if it can prevent new HIV infections.
