Aspirin may help prevent HIV: study

Aspirin may help prevent HIV: study

An affordable, globally available drug — low-dose aspirin — could help prevent HIV transmission, scientists say.

HIV infection rates remain unacceptably high, especially among young African women.

Researchers tested the effect of aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs on HIV target cells in a group of Kenyan women who were at low risk for HIV.

The study was published in the Journal of the International AIDS Society.
