Answer

Hi

Thanks for your question.

Although this study got a lot of publicity recently, this involved a lot of inappropriate journalism even from mainstreams press including the Sunday Times and the Sunday Telegraph.

This is still a very early phase study and the results are not expected for several years. Most of the researchers only expect this to be early stage research – they are not expecting people in the study to be cured.

Also, the study is only looking to recruit people who have been very recently infection.

The link to the RIVER study website includes more information and a contact email address.
