Abstract

More than 7000 new HIV infections are documented each day worldwide. In this Perspective, we dissect new results from a large clinical trial showing that genital and plasma HIV-1 RNA loads predict the risk of heterosexual transmission and that genital tract viral RNA load does so independently of plasma viral load. Furthermore, beyond its de ned study end points, this well-conducted trial identi ed new research directions that should be pursued in smaller intensive basic and translational studies.
