Response from Mr. Vergel

If your viral load is under 50 copies/ml as you said, it is virtually impossible to infect him.

A major study (HPTN 052) examining how antiretrovirals (ARVs) reduce the risk of HIV transmission among heterosexuals has found that no participant with a fully suppressed viral load infected his or her long-term HIV-negative partner.

What Makes the HPTN 052 Study So Significant?
