According to researchers at the National Institutes of Health, the consistent use of antiretroviral therapy can successfully prevent the transmission of HIV. UPI reports that the new study conducted by the NIH shows that suppressing HIV to undetectable levels can make the virus untransmittable. The latest study builds on earlier research that showed when an HIV-positive person in a heterosexual couple adhered to antiretroviral therapy (ART), that person could not transmit the virus to their partner. In a new study published Thursday in JAMA, HIV transmission did not occur between gay couples who took antiretroviral therapy, when one partner was infected with the virus. According to the CDC, approximately 1.1 million people in the United States has HIV. Nearly 39,000 people were diagnosed with HIV in the US in 2017.
