Data from the GRACE study will be published in the September 21st issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine. GRACE is the largest-ever study of treatment-experienced adult women with HIV-1 to examine gender differences in response to HIV therapy. Sponsored by Tibotec Therapeutics Clinical Affairs, a division of Centocor Ortho Biotech Services, LLC, the GRACE study enrolled 67 percent women, demonstrating that it is possible to recruit large numbers of women into U.S.-based HIV treatment studies. The company has launched www.TheGraceStudy.com to share learnings from the GRACE study and other information for women living with HIV.

A new genetic substudy of PLATO showed that the effects on a combined primary endpoint of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, or stroke seen in Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) patients who received the investigational oral antiplatelet treatment, ticagrelor (BRILINTA™), were maintained, whether or not they had the genetic variability that has been previously shown to affect a patient’s response to clopidogrel. The substudy is the first to look at both efficacy and bleeding endpoints of ACS patients treated with ticagrelor who carry variations in the CYP2C19 and ABCB1 genes. The data were presented today at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) congress in Stockholm, Sweden and simultaneously published in The Lancet.
