What Major HIV Research Developments Does 2014 Hold in Store?

April 4, 2014

Antonio Urbina, M.D.

Easier Adherence and PrEP

"I was very excited about the new GSK compound, the new integrase inhibitor. It has a very long half-life, but what's more interesting is that there's these new formulations where persons with HIV or at risk for HIV could potentially give themselves intramuscular injections that could last up to three months. So I think that could be a really big breakthrough, in terms of really solving this whole issue around adherence to antiretrovirals."

-- Antonio Urbina, M.D., Associate Medical Director, Spencer Cox Center for Health, St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital, New York.
