HIV Drug Given Before Retrovirus Exposure Can Reduce Risk
The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta has some brand new information out about exposure to HIV. The CDC says in their research with one partner having HIV, and the other not, giving the drug to the one who does not test positive for HIV, increases that person’s chances for not contracting HIV.
The CDC is showing that their new evidence indicates that if you give HIV drugs to the uninfected partner before they are exposed, then the drugs can reduce that person’s risk of getting the virus.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention information shows that ht uninfected partner that is given a daily dose of antiretrovirals increased their chances of not getting HIV by 60 percent.
These results in conjuntion with study information from the University of Washington showed common conclusions. Their study researched heterosexual couples in which only one person was infected with HIV.
