Dr. Anthony Fauci speaks out on treatment as prevention, pre-exposure prophylaxis and the way forward

More details were fleshed out on several compelling studies finding antiretroviral treatment is effective in preventing HIV infection – two pre-exposure prophylaxis studies as well as a large study (HPTN 052) looking at treatment of HIV infected persons in stable discordant partnerships that showed significant protection for the uninfected partner.

Science Speaks addressed these new studies and other topics Monday evening with Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Anthony Fauci at the 2011 International AIDS Society meeting in Rome.
