from Jules: a hot topic at CROI was PrEP & bone & renal function, on PrEP renal function can modestly decline in a smaller percent of patients and bone health as measured by Bone Mineral Density (BMD) can decline too. As well, STIs while taking PrEP were a topic of discussion at CROI, this will be discussed in my next email report. There was a study that reported 1 person on PrEP who appeared to be adherent taking PrEP contracted HIV & was infected from a person who had tenofovir resistant virus which apparently is why he contracted HIV because the tenofovir was not effective because the other sex partner had tenofovir resistance and the infected person also gt a virus with multi class resistance HIV, but the investigator reported the patient still was able to achieve undetectable viral load from ART. Bob Grant reported in a study that BMD loss can improve after stopping PrEP:
