Clinical trials start on possible PrEP injectible

DAILY EXTRA – The Daily Extra released a report that the first clinical trial for an injection PrEP regimen has started. The idea is that with one injection the recipient would be protected for 2 months.

The purpose of injection is similar to using Truvada as PrEP, but instead of taking a pill daily, the anti-HIV drug, cabotegravir, is injected once every eight weeks with hopes that it will prevent the spread of HIV.

With the recent findings that Beta Blog reported with adherence issues to PrEP in young men that have sex with men (YMSM) this could be a huge advancement in cutting down the amount of new HIV infections, which are scarily on the rise.

A new report came out this week discussing the probable reduction in new HIV infections if more of the at risk population was on PrEP.

That’s what studies have shown. If this catches on as a public health strategy, that means there are going to be people who will take Truvada irregularly and some will be infected, and some develop drug resistance.

Thanks to Dr. Michael Fanous for bringing this article to our attention. Find more about Dr. Fanous at Medsexpert.ca or on his Facebook page.
