HIV Transmission & Prevention
Small Study Suggests That HIV Med Combination May Prevent Rectal HIV Transmission in Monkeys
Monkeys injected with a version of Truvada (tenofovir/FTC) appear to be completely protected from infection with HIV, according to the results of a small pilot study presented at the 13th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections. Each day for 14 days, the monkeys were injected with the modified Truvada formulation and then exposed rectally to SHIV, a monkey-human HIV hybrid; Truvada treatment continued for four weeks after the last exposure. The six monkeys that received the drug injections did not become infected with SHIV, while nine monkeys used in a previous experiment eventually all became infected. Studies are now underway to see whether these findings may apply to humans as well.

And just how do they get these monkeys to bugger each other? Is there a captive strain of queer monkeys at some secret government research facility? You could probably tell the queer monkeys from the straight because the queer ones would have a sense of color coordination.

Thanks, even if you didn't intend it this gave me the biggest laugh of my day and, I won a court case today against the guy who stole my client's pension benefits. Really too much, an injection that would allow anal sex; we used to call that Poppers.

Life is a river.
Carpe diem.
