Skip to comments.Two different cases of PrEP failure despite high adherence underline that such events are rare, but should not be ignored

Two reports of HIV infection occurring despite apparent adequate adherence to PrEP, confirmed by drug level testing, are the first reliably documented cases to be published in peer-reviewed journals since 2018.
The most recent case was reported by Dr Matthew Spinelli in Clinical Infectious Diseases. It concerns a 44-year-old gay man in Texas and appears not to be due to poor adherence, but to infection with an HIV virus with an unusual combination of resistance mutations. Two characteristics of the case make it hard to argue against this being a genuine case of PrEP breakthrough. Firstly, samples of blood and hair confirm that he had had good adherence to PrEP in the two to three months leading up to his infection. Secondly, a pattern of HIV and viral load testing showed this was an acute infection that probably only occurred a few weeks at most before he reported symptoms. Notably, his initial positive HIV test was interpreted as a 'false positive' because his adherence appeared to be so good.

Where 2 cases are identified, hundreds more are likely. And the way the sodomite community networks, this strain will likely spread nationwide in no time.
Time to quarantine?
Another virus Fauci failed to solve.
Fecal sex has consequences.
But these guys who actually have a deadly infection are having sex with no condoms in sight and that is ok.
I have sound logical reasons for not wearing a mask but this kind of thing would make me go mask free just because.
PrEP was supposed to be the silver bullet that fags could use to ward off the gay disease. What will they try next? Abstinence? Hahahahaha!!!!
From the article
“The second, contrasting case was published earlier in the year but is reported here for the purposes of comparison. The 24-year-old gay man was on a clinical trial of PrEP that was comparing the efficacy of daily versus event-driven 2-1-1 PrEP. He reported receptive anal sex, often involving chemsex drugs. He was screened for HIV and started PrEP in September 2018 and at this point was found to have, and was treated for, syphilis, gonorrhoea in the throat, and rectal chlamydia.”
Im going to throw up. And I dont throw up easily.
My thought, exactly.
Note that the queer hookup apps havent been shut down the way churches have.
oh, those awful commercials come to mind. Diseased flamers.
What commercials? Without t.v., Ive missed them, thankfully.
A completely preventable disease. It’s a pity they don’t stop the behavior that causes it. These meds just enable them to keep spreading it to more people for longer.
The Texas case looks like it might be a legitimate PrEP failure but the Hong Kong case probably wasnt when you look at the details. I recall a French case recently mentioned on FR shows high degrees of drug resistance.
Lucky dog!!! I like some TV shows and we get inundated with homo love commercials. Blech.
OK; Not being a FAGGOT/HOMO, just what the hell is PrEP?
Serious question, never heard of this PrEP before.
Oh God, that is vomit inducing.
Quarantine like in the fist wave of HIV.
Back in the eighties. Instead of quarantine they knocked off
a generation of hemophiliacs with tainted blood.
I didn’t know either so I looked it up:
“PrEP means Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, and it’s the use of anti-HIV medications to keep HIV negative people from becoming infected”
