Open Letter From HIV-Positive Prevention Advocates Rejects Misinformation About Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)
Date:9/15/2011

NEW YORK, Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Close to 100 openly HIV-positive gay and bisexual men from across the United States and around the world have signed a new letter (http://tinyurl.com/pozPrEPletter) calling for an open discussion, "based on facts rather than on fear or misinformation," of the challenges and opportunities presented by pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV prevention in gay and bisexual men and transgender women. The new open letter is designed in part to urge FDA review of PrEP and to clarify facts about important PrEP research that advocates say have been misrepresented in a paid ad campaign sponsored by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF).

Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a new HIV prevention method in which an uninfected person takes a daily HIV medication to reduce HIV infection risk. Data from an international study released in November, 2010 called iPrEx found that men and transgender women who have sex with men who received a daily single-tablet dose of the HIV drugs tenofovir and emtricitabine along with condoms and safe sex counseling had an average of 42% fewer HIV infections than those who received condoms and counseling alone. Much higher rates of protection were achieved among participants who took PrEP consistently.

Most of the HIV prevention community welcomed the news of a new tool that could significantly reduce infections in the populations at highest risk for HIV in many parts of the world. One HIV treatment provider, however, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, has taken out an extensive series of full-page advertisements in gay papers around the country claiming that gay and bisexual men will act recklessly and will spread HIV if they are allowed to use PrEP. The AHF ad campaign claims that it is supporting gay and bisexual health by urging the U.S. FDA to ignore the PrEP study.

Today's open letter challenges both the tone and content o
