To the Editor: Dr Crepaz and colleagues conclude that human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)–infected patients taking highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) did not exhibit increased sexual risk behavior, even when therapy achieved an undetectable viral load.1 In their discussion, the authors state that medical factors, such as duration of HAART or disease stage, might elucidate their findings because patients initiating HAART may have symptomatic illness that decreases their interest in sex.
