Results of iPrEX trial were published in the New England Journal of Medicine in November 2010. Briefly, there was a significant reduction of HIV infection, which increased with higher adherence rates among study subjects who received the active drug compared to those who received the placebo. Based on these findings, the CDC published interim guidelines for PrEP use among MSM in the January 28, 2011 issue of MMWR.
