9th AIDS Vaccine Conference, 19-22 October 2009, Paris

Introduction

The AIDS Vaccine conference is one of the most important scientific meetings on AIDS vaccine research and development. It was attended by more than 1,000 delegates and included over 400 scientific presentations.

Programme highlights that increased the profile of the meeting this year, included a full presentation from the Thai phase III trial that controversially reported top level results a few weeks earlier in a press release.

We report this study here, which coincided with publication in the NEJM.
