Drug prevention of HIV discovered?

Research at the University of Montreal found that Methadone can reduce the risk of HIV transmission through injection between patients.

It is based on the research of Dr. Julie Bruneau of the CHUM Research Centre, published in the British Medical Journal.

"This study provides strong evidence of the effects of drug therapy using mehadone with a reduced risk of HIV transmission through injection," said Dr. Bruneau, as reported by Science Daily.

So far it is known that the injection causes 5-10 percent of HIV infections and AIDS worldwide. While Methadone and buprenorphine are the main drugs used for therapy for people with HIV and AIDS.

The study was conducted by observing nine HIV-related research in men aged 26 to 39 years as many as 23,608 people.

The result, researchers found that OST (therapy involving drugs methadone and buprenorphine) can reduce the risk of Hib infection by 54 percent.

According to the researchers, the results of this study show the positive side of HIV treatment and prevention of transmission through treatment involving methadone. However, what can happen if HIV drugs were actually found.

Is the emergence of Methadone as HIV prevention will make people with HIV feel safe to do the injection?
