|Decreasing viral load in semen
Jan 3, 2009
Why there are no meds designed to reduce or eliminate the presence of virus in semen instead of blood? This would make a significant reduction in sexual trasmissions at least from men to women.
| Response from Dr. Holodniy
Many HIV drugs do get into the semen and studies have shown a reduction in viral load in the semen after starting HIV treatment. However, not all drugs get into semen at the same level and so there is likely decreased activity depending on which drug combinations you use.
