A great new study is currently recruiting participants. It's called the "Opposites Attract Study"
What is the Opposites Attract Study?
Opposites Attract is a globally unique study exploring HIV treatments, viral load, and HIV transmission in serodiscordant gay male relationships (that is, where one man is HIV-negative and the other man is HIV-positive). Previous research in heterosexuals has shown that when the HIV-positive partner is on effective anti-HIV treatments and has undetectable viral load, the risk of transmitting HIV to their HIV-negative partner is reduced by 96%. The problem is that we just don’t know if this important finding applies to gay men.
