Did You Know?

Dr. Kevin Malotte (Health Science) was a co-author of an article published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine this month.

He was a member of the research team that conducted a study that involved giving a combined drug to heterosexual adults in Botswana to prevent HIV infection. You can read the article, Antiretroviral Preexposure Prophylaxis for Heterosexual HIV Transmission, on the Journal’s website. This was one of the studies cited by the FDA in licensing the first drug for the prevention of HIV in the United States this week.
