Summary of "ART in HIV-positive persons with low pre-treatment viremia: results from the START trial."

The benefit of immediate antiretroviral therapy (ART) at CD4 >500 cells/ìL was established in the Strategic Timing of Antiretroviral Treatment (START) study. The benefits and risks of immediate ART in participants with low pre-treatment viremia, including virologic suppressors, was further assessed.
