EU - Green light PrEP

Whilst the UK might have a high court case against it or rather about who should pay for this at least at EU level the news is good  :)

European regulators have issued a green light for the use of Gilead's Truvada to cut the risk of HIV infection in adults.

The once-daily pill has been cleared for a strategy known as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), under which the drug is prescribed alongside safer-sex practices to help prevent HIV infection in adults at high risk.

"The approval of Truvada for PrEP represents an important step forward in addressing the incidence of HIV in Europe" said Norbert Bischofberger, PhD, chief scientific officer at Gilead. "When taken as directed and used in combination with other prevention strategies, Gilead believes Truvada for PrEP can have a meaningful impact on public health by helping to reduce HIV transmission rates across Europe."

The authorisation, which was announced yesterday, August 22, allows for the marketing of Truvada in all 28 countries of the EU.
