February 25 , 2015
A daily pill called Truvada offers effective protection to gay men against HIV infection. As per the reports of the trial conducted in the UK, the pill cuts infections by 86%.
NHS England is now trying to determine the cost-effectiveness of providing it to gay men who are at high risk.
Truvada, which has already been approved in the US, is widely used there to prevent HIV in certain high-risk groups.
Researchers have described the results of the study as “extremely exciting”.
