This issue leads with a treatment alert relating to the European recall of nelfinavir. As we went to press, the EMEA are working with Roche to formulate a patient registry to follow patients exposed to any level of contaminated drug. Further details will be announced as soon as they are available.

We also include first reports from the XVI International Resistance Workshop that focus on the first chance to look at issue of resistance relating to integrase inhibitors.

This issue includes the last of our reports from the Retrovirus conference and a selection of studies from the PK Workshop held in April.
