Antiretroviral Drugs May Prevent HIV Infection
Byroney_WebMD_Staff posted:
Here's some exciting news! "Drugs that suppress HIV in infected people may also help protect healthy people who take them from getting the virus through sexual contact, two new studies show.

"The studies found that the antiretroviral medications, which can be given as once-daily pills, cut the infection risk by as much as 73% compared to a placebo."

If it does turn out to work as well as researchers believe, would you want to go on a one-a-day pill to reduce your infection risk?
