Research points to the prospect of a once-monthly anti-HIV drug Edit
Once-daily anti-HIV treatment was considered a breakthrough, but researchers are now developing an anti-HIV drug that might need to be taken just once a month.
Researchers are trying to find other drugs that could be formulated in a similar way. This could mean that potent, multi-drug anti-HIV treatment could be developed that is injected monthly.
This technology could also be used for HIV prevention to provide long-lasting pre-exposure prophylaxis or a as a microbicide.
