Brief Summary:
The primary objectives of this study are to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a switch to Doravirine/Islatravir (DOR/ISL) compared with continued baseline antiretroviral therapy (ART), through Week 48; and to evaluate the antiretroviral activity of a switch to DOR/ISL compared with continued baseline ART at Week 48. The primary hypothesis is that DOR/ISL is non-inferior to continued baseline ART, as assessed by the percentage of participants with HIV-1 ribonucleic acid (RNA) ≥50 copies/mL at Week 48, with a margin of 4 percentage points used to define non-inferiority.
