I would like to know if this study was funded by the makers of Truvada. Seems convenient this would be published as they are trying to push Truvada for prophylaxis. I took Truvada for almost 5 years and my kidney function steadily declined only to rebound completely once Truvada was discontinued.

Your study didn't include me, I went into total renal failure while taking Truvada,the biopsy said it was caused by an allergic reaction to a medication, funny how the nephrologist and my ID doc knew exactly the culprit - Truvada. So don't tell me how minor this is, dialysis for 3 months and now besides living with HIV, now add CKD Stage3 - thanks Truvada, hope Dewey, Cheatem and Howe shows up with a class action suit on late night TV. You do dialysis, I'd rather die than go through that again.
