What are common treatments for hiv, prevention?

"Some treatments for hiv and/or pre-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) include supplements for various nutrient deficiencies and drugs that alter immune function or replication of the virus such as anti-retroviral drugs or integrase inhibitors. It is necessary to continue to develop more-selective, non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTI) that increase the durability of treatment. Also, new drugs such as fusion inhibitors and other biologics would offer an option for patients whose immune system is compromised, but who do not benefit from NNRTI therapy. More so, vaccines remain an option for preventing HIV exposure." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is hiv, prevention?

"HIV prevention does not guarantee a reduction in HIV transmission. The best way of reducing HIV transmission is to prevent men having sex with other men. However, condom use between men who have sex with men and between sex partners is critical if HIV is going to be effectively controlled. The use of condoms both in men who have sex with men and in those who have relationships with men would not only increase the health and sexual satisfaction of these men, but would also reduce the number of young people who acquire AIDS through exposure to HIV." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How many people get hiv, prevention a year in the United States?

"Estimates vary widely of numbers who would get infected with HIV every year in the United States. Preventive efforts and health care need must be tailored to the population in question. There is no single answer to these crucial questions that will work for all jurisdictions. There are also differences in the way the questions may be posed to respondents of different racial-ethnic groups and other demographic subgroups. Using the data in this study, we can make some estimates, but not all, of the number of people getting AIDS in any given year in the U.S. The estimates can help health officials planning programs. They can help states allocate funds for those services." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Who should consider clinical trials for hiv, prevention?

"In the current era, the decision to enroll in clinical trials is often based on personal desire and fear of adverse effects of new drugs. In addition to this, current research on clinical trials shows limited results for hiv, prevention trials that involve immunizations. Moreover, while the majority of men will be infected with hiv, men are in more control of their personal health than the disease. These men are in more control of their lifestyle choices, making it more difficult for them to be interested in trials. In the future, [HIV, prevention trials] could address the fears of the majority of men and the desires of the majority of women, if more research is done on the long-term safety of new drugs." - Anonymous Online Contributor
