Truvada appeared to temporarily prevent some weight gain and reduce cholesterol slightly in a recent study.
With a grant to follow their large study population through 2021, researchers hope to gain vital new insights about HIV infection.
The study also found that compared with HIV-negative people with heart risks, those with HIV were prescribed aspirin at a lower rate.
