Washington: An international study has found that taking antiretroviral medications can significantly reduce risk of HIV infections.
“This study demonstrates that antiretrovirals are a highly potent and fundamental cornerstone for HIV prevention and should become an integral part of global efforts for HIV prevention,” Celum stated.In the study, those who received tenofovir (TDF) had an average of 62 percent fewer HIV infections and those who received tenofovir combined with emtricitabine (FTC/TDF) had 73 percent fewer HIV infections than those who received placebo. “This is an extremely exciting finding for the field of HIV prevention. Now, more than ever, the priority for HIV prevention research must be on how to deliver successful prevention strategies, like PrEP, to populations in greatest need,” Dr. Jared Baeten, co-chair of the study and a UW associate professor of global health and medicine, added.
