Hi and thanks for posting.
There is a prodrug congener of tenofovir, called GS-7340 in development. As a prodrug, it has the same active molecule as tenofovir DF and shares the same resistance profile. GS-7340 is in phase 3 clinical studies.
Other companies are working on nucleoside analogs with unique resistance profiles, but these are generally in early phase development.
