BetaBlog CROI Update: PrEP
March 4, 2016
Dr. Robert Grant weighs in after the first case of failed PrEP: What does it mean?
At CROI today, researchers and providers heard a detailed case study of a man who was infected with drug-resistant HIV while taking PrEP. No study to date has definitively documented a “breakthrough” HIV infection during PrEP with adherence to Truvada, so the report has garnered a lot of attention and concern from community members.
BETA spoke with Robert Grant, MD, MPH, to give context to the discussion about what this case means for people currently taking PrEP.
