ABSTRACT
The article reports on the significance of Truvada, a drug used for the treatment of AIDS, to the gay community. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a study in March 2006 which showed that the drug prevented HIV infection in monkeys. Truvada manufacturer Gilead Sciences is backing away from any suggestion that the drug should be given to healthy people to prevent HIV infection, saying that more clinical trials involving humans need to be done first.
