New PrEP Trial Results Among Injecting Drug Users Underscore That PrEP Works When Taken Consistently
Date:6/12/2013

need to offer these services without criminalizing, stigmatizing or infringing on the rights of those who need them," Warren said. "However, this is the first trial to provide evidence for a prevention option that could protect against HIV infection through both sexual contact and injecting drug use—and this is an exciting finding that must be followed up. PrEP could be a powerful additional tool for some people who inject drugs," Warren added.

CDC's new interim guidelines also released Wednesday include important guidance for how PrEP can best be used to help people who inject drugs protect themselves. Consolidated US Public Health Service Guidelines on PrEP use for all risk groups, which will include more detailed guidance on PrEP use for injecting drug users, are expected to be released later this year.

"We commend the CDC for acting quickly to put these interim guidelines in place to help individuals and their health care providers make informed decisions about PrEP use in the context of comprehensive HIV prevention. PrEP is not a silver bullet or a simple solution, but it is an option that can be life-saving for some individuals," Warren added.

"PrEP using tenofovir-based drugs is a niche product that cannot and will not replace other options that are part of combination prevention. Yet it is an intervention with the real possibility of preventing infections, especially where other prevention options aren't enough," Warren said.

"Now, policy makers, regulators, advocates, WHO, UNAIDS and Gilead Sciences—the manufacturer of both TDF and TDF/FTC—must work together to determine how best to move forward to ensure that PrEP is included where appropriate in comprehensive harm reduction programs for people who inject drugs. PrEP must complement, not replace, harm reduction programs everywhere, and especially in countries and communities with significant HIV epidemics driven by injecting drugs," Warren added.
