CROI 2014: HIV Transmission through Condomless Sex [VIDEO]

alt

An analysis of more than 750 serodiscordant heterosexual and gay couples in the PARTER study who engaged in more than 45,000 condomless sex acts found no cases of linked HIV transmission when the positive partner was on effective antiretroviral therapy (ART), confirming that treatment as prevention works, according to a report at the 21st Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI 2014) this week in Boston.

PARTNER lead investigator Jens Lundgren from the University of Copenhagen spoke with Gregory Fowler from HIVandHepatits.com about the implications of this study and how it can help inform decisions about sexual risk.
