Injections that could one day be an alternative to daily pills for people living with HIV have been shown to be effective in maintaining viral supression, bringing them one step closer to market.
Commenting on the news, Kat Smithson, Director of Policy & Campaigns at National AIDS Trust (NAT), said: “Constantly improving treatments for HIV have revolutionised the lives of people living with this condition. The potential for HIV to be successfully treated with an injection repeated every month, rather than pills taken every day, could be life-enhancing for many people. It will help with adherence to medication and allow people with HIV to get on with their lives.
“Although we are some way off this treatment being available to patients, we’re excited about the potential for this to improve life for people living with HIV."
