What is DOVATO?

DOVATO is an HIV medicine that controls HIV by helping people reach and/or stay undetectable with just 2 medicines in 1 pill.* No other complete HIV pill contains fewer medicines than DOVATO.

DOVATO is a one-pill, once-a-day complete treatment for adults who are new to HIV-1 treatment or are replacing their current HIV-1 medicines. Take DOVATO exactly as your healthcare provider tells you.

What does “undetectable” mean?

Reaching and staying undetectable has always been a key goal of treatment. Simply put, it means this: the amount of HIV in the blood is below the level that can be measured by a lab test.

What is different about DOVATO and why does it matter?

With just 2 medicines in 1 pill, DOVATO was clinically proven to control HIV as effectively as an HIV treatment with 3 or 4 medicines by helping people reach and/or stay undetectable.

That means fewer medicines in your body, today and tomorrow.

Based on data from the GEMINI 1 & 2 studies (patients new to treatment) and TANGO study (patients replacing their current HIV treatment). DOVATO was compared to a regimen containing either 3 or 4 medicines, measuring either the percentage of patients with an undetectable viral load (<50 copies/mL) or the percentage of patients without an undetectable viral load (≥50 copies/mL).
GEMINI: Dolutegravir + tenofovir disoproxil fumarate/emtricitabine.
TANGO: Tenofovir alafenamide-based 3- or 4-drug regimen.

“When I found out I may be able to stay undetectable with fewer medicines, I talked to my doctor about switching to DOVATO.”
