In this episode, a discussion with Reilly O'Neal, editor of BETA, the Foundation's Bulletin of Experimental Treatments for AIDS. Recent studies offer evidence and raise questions about the role of antiretroviral medications in curbing the spread of HIV. Questions such as "Are HIV-positive people who take antiretroviral drugs less likely to transmit the virus?" Find out what's being done to answer these questions and the relationship between HIV treatment and HIV prevention.
