New AVAC Report on Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis Calls for Immediate Planning to Anticipate Study Results of Potential New HIV Prevention Option

Anticipating the Results of PrEP Trials provides an up-to-date status report on current PrEP research; addresses concerns about PrEP, including the possibilities of drug resistance, partial efficacy, and the potential for increased risk behavior and social stigma; looks at the potential impact of PrEP on future HIV prevention research; and considers what questions should we be preparing to ask now based on possible different research outcomes as PrEP studies begin reporting data in the next few years.

"We cannot shy away from discussing issues such as potential drug resistance, the difficulty of adhering to a once-a-day pill regimen for people who are not sick, or the cost of providing PrEP. This report and today's meeting lay the groundwork for these important
