Yeah, I heard the news story on the radio yesterday(?). Apparently, there were several studies done in different countries that confirmed the effect, and one that did not. In the one that did not, most of the subjects did not take the meds as directed.

Here are some links. Two are about HIV, the last one is about rabies.

   Hi Windy:

It's only been 15 years! I wonder who was reading our forum (pharmaceutical companies $$$ or researchers). Or both I remember posting that I was surprised pharmaceutical companies weren't all over this...I bet other PrEPs are going to follow. But with the economy and healthcare, hard to justify. If I were in their shoes, I'd go for OTC and then market the other. I'm still not sure why these drugs are not OTC. Maybe stigma? And I am still surprised they have other drugs OTC.
