The end of AIDS?
HIV-suppressing medication can make the AIDS virus 'untransmittable' even among couples who have sex without condoms, new research showed today.
A Europe-wide study monitored nearly 1,000 gay male couples over eight years, where one partner was HIV-positive and receiving antiretroviral (ART) treatment, while the other was HIV negative.
Doctors did not find one single case of in-couple HIV transmission within that time.
This raises hopes that widespread ART programmes could eventually end new infections.
