ABSTRACT
In this article the author reflects on a study that evaluates the effectiveness of acyclovir to the reduction of HIV transmission especially in heterosexual couples. The randomized, placebo-controlled trial of acyclovir represents a reduction on the transmission of HIV-1 in serodiscordant couples through reduced genital ulcer disease and lower HIV-1 plasma level. However, the author remarks that acyclovir is just not good enough to lower HIV transmission.
