As the leaves fall from the trees in much of the U.S., we've got some particularly juicy fruits to harvest in this week's collection of recently published HIV research. Here's what we've plucked for you this time around:

  • New York City health officials make the case for a new measurement of HIV treatment success: 90-day virologic control.
  • Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) has been strongly associated with a 25% drop in HIV incidence in one Australian state.
  • Data tie moderate exercise to significant health benefits among older people with HIV.
  • A study finds CD4 recovery occurs among roughly seven of 10 people with long-term viral suppression on antiretroviral therapy.

Let's take a closer look at each of these fresh picks. To beat HIV, you have to follow the science!
