Maryland, USA: The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the world’s first injection that can prevent the spread of HIV and prevent AIDS.
Its main name is Apparatus which can protect people at risk of HIV from this contagious disease. This will reduce the hassle of taking antiviral drugs like Trivada and Discovi daily. These pills prevent 99% of the spread of HIV through sexual contact.
The first two doses of approved injection are given at one-month intervals. A vaccine has to be given every two months.
This treatment is called pre-exposure prophylaxis, and there are 1.2 million people in the United States alone who have not yet been exposed to HIV but may be sexually infected. Preliminary experiments showed that aperated injections were slightly more effective than drugs.
In the first trial, 4,600 normal men and transgender women were vaccinated. It was common for transgender women to have sex with men. Among them, Aperatide vaccine proved to be effective up to 69%. Then in the second trial, another 3,200 transgender women were injected with the vaccine, which showed a 90 percent protection against HIV.
A single dose of injection costs 37 3,700, while the total cost of six injections is 200 22,200.
