19th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI), 5-8 March 2012
The Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) conference is probably the most important annual scientific HIV meeting and it is also one of the most accessible for people who are unable to attend the meeting.
Most of the presentations are available to watch free online without registration. This includes web casts of the opening lectures, oral presentations and poster discussions.
Abstracts and PDF files for many of the full posters are also online.
With over 1100 studies presented, we will split coverage over two issues of HTB. This issue includes reports on cure research, antiretrovirals, paediatrics, prevention studies and some hepatitis coinfection. The next issue will include PMTCT, women’s health, treatment access, TB, opportunistic infections, side effects and other complications. Some of these early reports will be posted online prior to the print edition.
This issue includes:
- PrEP: PK modeling of daily TDF/FTC (Truvada) provides close to 100% protection against HIV infection
