HIV Prevention Drug Shows 100% Efficacy in Clinical Trial

Written by gcsjjustified

A new HIV prevention drug called lenacapavir has shown 100% efficacy in a clinical trial among adolescent girls and young women. The drug, which is administered via injection every six months, was found to have zero new HIV infections among the over 2,000 participants who received it. This is the first time an HIV prevention drug has demonstrated 100% efficacy in a phase 3 clinical trial. Lenacapavir is a promising new tool that could help address the stigma and adherence challenges associated with daily oral PrEP medications, potentially increasing access to effective HIV prevention.
