NIH study finds long-acting injectable drug prevents HIV acquisition in cisgender women

A pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) regimen containing an investigational long-acting form of the HIV drug cabotegravir injected once every eight weeks was safe and more effective than a daily oral PrEP regimen at preventing HIV acquisition among a group of cisgender women. The women, from southern and east Africa, are enrolled in a clinical trial sponsored […]

Common HIV drugs increase a type of immunity in the gut

Drugs currently used to keep the HIV virus in check also cause immune-system changes that might make humans better able to resist viral infections – but might also cause harmful inflammation, according to a study published in Cell Reports Medicine. The UW Medicine-led study by Dr Florian Hladik and Sean Hughes examined the effects of a commonly prescribed drug cocktail of drugs on the body. Gut cells […]
