Antiviral product sales, which include products in our HIV and liver disease areas, were

$7.2 billion

$7.0 billion

In the U.S., antiviral product sales were

$4.0 billion

$4.9 billion

, primarily due to a decline in sales of Harvoni

(ledipasvir 90 mg/sofosbuvir 400 mg), partially offset by increases in sales of Sovaldi

(sofosbuvir 400 mg), Truvada

(emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate) and Genvoya

(elvitegravir 150 mg/cobicistat 150 mg/emtricitabine 200 mg/tenofovir alafenamide 10 mg). Genvoya was launched in the U.S. in November 2015.

Product & Pipeline Updates announced by Gilead during the

First Quarter


Announced that U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Odefsey

(emtricitabine 200 mg/rilpivirine 25 mg/tenofovir alafenamide 25 mg or R/F/TAF) for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in certain patients. Emtricitabine and tenofovir alafenamide are from Gilead while rilpivirine is from Janssen Sciences Ireland UC, one of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson. Odefsey is Gilead’s second TAF-based regimen to receive FDA approval and represents the smallest pill of any single-tablet regimen available today for the treatment of HIV.

Announced that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use, the scientific committee of the European Medicines Agency (EMA), adopted a positive opinion on the company’s Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for two doses of Descovy

(emtricitabine 200 mg/tenofovir alafenamide 25 mg, F/TAF), an investigational fixed-dose combination for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in adults and adolescents (ages 12 years and older with body weight at least 35 kg) in combination with other HIV antiretroviral agents.

Presented data at the 2016 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, which included the announcement of:

48-week results from a Phase 3 study (Study 1089) evaluating the safety and efficacy of switching virologically suppressed HIV-1 infected adult patients from regimens containing Truvada to regimens containing the investigational fixed-dose combination of emtricitabine and F/TAF. At Week 48, the F/TAF-based regimens were found to be statistically non-inferior to the emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (F/TDF) -based regimens, based on percentages of patients with HIV-1 RNA levels less than 50 copies/mL. The study also demonstrated statistically significant improvements in renal and bone laboratory parameters among patients receiving F/TAF-based regimens.

Results from a preclinical study conducted in collaboration with researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center evaluating a proprietary investigational oral toll-like receptor 7 (TLR7) agonist, GS-9620, and a related molecular analogue, GS-986, as part of an HIV eradication strategy. Data from the study conducted in simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV)-infected virally suppressed rhesus macaques on antiretroviral therapy (ART) demonstrate that TLR7 agonist treatment induced transient plasma SIV RNA blips and reduced SIV DNA. In addition, TLR7 agonist treatment resulted in subsequent prolonged virus suppression in some of the macaques after stopping ART.

Announced that the company’s Type II variation application for once-daily Truvada in combination with safer sex practices to reduce the risk of sexually acquired HIV-1 infection among uninfected adults at high risk, a strategy known as pre-exposure prophylaxis or PrEP, was fully validated and under evaluation by the EMA.

Announced that the company’s MAA for TAF 25 mg, an investigational, once-daily treatment for adults with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection, was fully validated and under assessment by the EMA. The company also submitted a new drug application (NDA) to FDA for TAF 25 mg for the treatment for adults with chronic HBV infection.

Announced that FDA approved two supplemental indications for Harvoni for use in chronic hepatitis C patients with advanced liver disease. Harvoni in combination with ribavirin for 12 weeks was approved for use in chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 1- or 4-infected liver transplant recipients without cirrhosis or with compensated cirrhosis (Child-Pugh A), and for HCV genotype 1-infected patients with decompensated cirrhosis (Child-Pugh B or C), including those who have undergone liver transplantation. Harvoni is approved for use in HCV genotypes 1, 4, 5 and 6, HCV/HIV-1 coinfection, HCV genotype 1 and 4 liver transplant recipients, and genotype 1-infected patients with decompensated cirrhosis.

Announced that FDA granted priority review to the company’s NDA for an investigational once-daily fixed-dose combination of sofosbuvir and velpatasvir (SOF/VEL), for the treatment of chronic genotype 1-6 HCV infection. FDA has set a target action date under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act of June 28, 2016.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Gilead has presented certain financial information in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and also on a non-GAAP basis. Management believes this non-GAAP information is useful for investors, when considered in conjunction with Gilead's GAAP financial statements, because management uses such information internally for its operating, budgeting and financial planning purposes. Non-GAAP information is not prepared under a comprehensive set of accounting rules and should only be used to supplement an understanding of Gilead's operating results as reported under GAAP. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial information is provided in the tables on pages 7 and 8.

Forward-looking Statements

Statements included in this press release that are not historical in nature are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Gilead cautions readers that forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially. These risks and uncertainties include: Gilead's ability to achieve its anticipated full year 2016 financial results; Gilead's ability to sustain growth in revenues for its antiviral and other programs; availability of funding for state AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs); continued fluctuations in ADAP purchases driven by federal and state grant cycles which may not mirror patient demand and may cause fluctuations in Gilead's earnings; the possibility of unfavorable results from clinical trials involving investigational compounds, including GS-9620 and GS-986; Gilead's ability to initiate clinical trials in its currently anticipated timeframes; the levels of inventory held by wholesalers and retailers which may cause fluctuations in Gilead's earnings; Gilead's ability to submit new drug applications for new product candidates in the timelines currently anticipated; Gilead's ability to receive regulatory approvals in a timely manner or at all, for new and current products, including SOF/VEL and TAF for the treatment of chronic HBV; Gilead's ability to successfully commercialize its products, including Genvoya, Odefsey and Descovy; the risk that physicians and patients may not see advantages of these products over other therapies and may therefore be reluctant to prescribe the products; the risk that estimates of patients with HCV or anticipated patient demand may not be accurate; the risk that private and public payers may be reluctant to provide, or continue to provide, coverage or reimbursement for new products, including Sovaldi and Harvoni; Gilead's ability to successfully develop its oncology, inflammation, cardiovascular and respiratory programs; safety and efficacy data from clinical studies may not warrant further development of Gilead's product candidates; the potential for pricing pressure from additional competitive HCV launches or austerity measures in European countries and Japan that may increase the amount of discount required on Gilead's products; Gilead's ability to complete its share repurchase program due to changes in its stock price, corporate or other market conditions; fluctuations in the foreign exchange rate of the U.S. dollar that may cause an unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact on Gilead's future revenues and pre-tax earnings; and other risks identified from time to time in Gilead's reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). In addition, Gilead makes estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and related disclosures. Gilead bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other market specific and other relevant assumptions that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ significantly from these estimates. You are urged to consider statements that include the words may, will, would, could, should, might, believes, estimates, projects, potential, expects, plans, anticipates, intends, continues, forecast, designed, goal, or the negative of those words or other comparable words to be uncertain and forward-looking. Gilead directs readers to its press releases, Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 and other subsequent disclosure documents filed with the SEC. Gilead claims the protection of the Safe Harbor contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 for forward-looking statements.

All forward-looking statements are based on information currently available to Gilead, and Gilead assumes no obligation to update any such forward-looking statements.
