A large study of 88,504 people with HIV on antiretroviral therapy (ART), published in the Lancet journal and reported widely in the news, has found substantial improvements in life expectancy in people with HIV who started ART after 2008, even in their first year of therapy. People who started ART in 2008-2010 and who had achieved CD4 counts over 350 cells/mm3 by the end of their first year of therapy had life expectancies approaching normal.
