    Safety and tolerability of maraviroc-containing regimens to prevent HIV infection in women: A phase 2 randomized trial

The authors also found that no new infections occurred with the study regimen, compared with the standard regimen, but more research is needed to determine whether that outcome is because of the study drug and whether the enrolled population was lower risk than anticipated.
