Vaginal implant might stop HIV transmission

Scientists at the University of Waterloo have developed a promising new medical device that could help protect women from HIV.

Researchers ID four types of nonbiomedical PrEP failure

Serota and colleagues describe 14 men who became infected with HIV in their EleMENt study of 300 young BMSM in Atlanta, despite being offered PrEP, along with services to ease access to PrEP uptake. They rightly point out that, in addition to the rare biomedical PrEP failures that receive so much attention at scientific meetings, we should focus our attention on the other “typologies” of PrEP failure that occur once PrEP is offered: low PrEP adherence, PrEP discontinuation, PrEP contemplation without initiation and PrEP refusal.

Generation PrEP?

Pre-exposure prophylaxis has an uncertain future among youth under 25. A litany of variables, both internal and logistical, can keep MSM of any age from accessing PrEP. These factors are often magnified by adolescence, a period during which individuals are less certain of their sexual orientation, less engaged in the health care system and less likely to adhere to a daily drug regimen.
