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.
