U of M research confirms benefits of early HIV treatment

In case you missed it, there was significant news this week on HIV treatment.

Federal health officials announced the results of a major international study that looked at how the timing of treatment affects patients' health.

The study found those who started HIV drugs early were far less likely to develop AIDS or other serious diseases.

MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with the principal investigator of that study, Jim Neaton, a professor of biostatistics at the University of Minnesota.
