issue_1078755 Great news and updates regarding two articles I recently wrote. One has gone on to publication while the other has moved to being classified as “in press.” The first article, “Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis: An Emerging Clinical Approach to Preventing HIV in High-Risk Adults” has been published in this month’s issue of The Nurse Practitioner: The American Journal of Primary Healthcare. The article explores advances in HIV prevention in those at high risk through the use of the antiretroviral medication Truvada. The abstract appears below.

Preexposure prophylaxis: An emerging clinical approach to preventing HIV in high-risk adults

Abstract: The HIV antiretroviral drug emtricitabine/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (Truvada) was recently approved as preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) therapy for adults at high risk for sexually acquired HIV infection. This article reviews the data supporting the efficacy of PrEP, and provides other relevant data regarding the implementation of PrEP.
