Hi there,
I am Dr. Scott - it is my pleasure to assist you today.

I have reviewed the research

Conclusion: "0% seroconversion rate in case series of 100 patients initiating PEP "

Therefore, the research states the taking PEP daily can prevent HIV infection.

However, this was a small population size so I would take all precautions because there is limited evidence supporting efficacy of PEP.

I hope this helps!

Does 0% seroconversion mean that it's almost impossible?
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. Scott, Doctor replied 1 year ago
Almost impossible according to limited research

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
