On Successful HAART
Nov 25, 2005

If a person is on a HAART regimen and is adherent, undectable VL, high and stable cd4's with no other STD's; does the HAART regimen act as PEP would if you are exposed to HIV from another individual??

Response from Dr. Pierone

I haven't thought of HAART for prevention of superinfection, but it should work unless someone has exposure to someone with a multi-drug resistant strain of virus.

33 to 0 tcell count
