On our radar in this week's brief exploration of recently published HIV-related research:

  • A suppressed plasma viral load may not mean a suppressed viral load in rectal mucosa.
  • Engagement in care is less than stellar among people on pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).
  • We should probably be paying much better attention to depression and mental health among women with HIV.
  • Dolutegravir monotherapy might be a little more than the drug's high resistance barrier can bear.

Read on for further details on each of these data-backed assertions. To beat HIV, you have to follow the science!
