Individuals diagnosed with HIV are presented with a life-shattering possibility – transmission of the eventually lethal virus to their spouse/partner, but the antiretroviral drugs HIV-positive patients take to stave off AIDS may actually prevent them from infecting their partners. The NIH have carried out a multi-million dollar study since 2005 and released the initial results this month - though they are still following the couples for another year. Their findings? Antiretroviral treatment reduces the transmission of HIV 96 percent!
