This article was originally published in Clinica
Men treated with anti-HIV drugs continue to secrete the virus in their semen and could spread resistant viruses through sexual intercourse, a Swiss-American study has revealed. As a result, doctors will need to test the semen of male HIV carriers for the virus as well their blood, to ensure that all traces of virus have been eliminated, say the study's leaders Dr Pietro Vernazza and Dr Joseph Eron, in the October 22 issue of the journal AIDS.
