Truvada® approved by the FDA for the prevention of HIV

The latest milestone in the 30-year battle against HIV, is Monday’s approval of Truvada®  by the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the prevention of HIV transmission. Truvada®  is the first anti-retroviral (ARV) drug to gain approval as a preventive measure for healthy HIV negative people who are at high risk of acquiring HIV through sexual activity, such as those who have HIV-infected partners.
