the results of the research, which were represented at the International AIDS Society meeting in France shows that instead of daily ARV drugs intake, a person with HIV positive status could have an injection with all the needed antiretroviral drugs once a month.

The Lancet journal also published the results of two-year study and the viral load of a group taking pills every day, a group received monthly injection and a group received injections every two months were similar to each other with the average of 83% of efficiency with the similar side effects like diarrhea and headache.

Now the III phase of trial is needed to confirm the results.
