Higher pill burden is associated with poorer adherence to HIV therapy and reduced chances of achieving an undetectable viral load, by Michael Carter

Lower pill burden is associated with higher rates of adherence to HIV treatment and better virological outcomes, according to the results of a meta-analysis published in the online edition of Clinical Infectious Diseases. The research also showed that adherence was better with once-daily regimens compared to twice-daily treatment, but once-daily therapy did not have any advantages in terms of virological suppression.
