15th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, Boston, 2-6 February 2008
The last three issues of HTB included reports on antiretrovirals and treatment strategies, prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT), paediatrics, hepatitis coinfection, opportunistic infections and treatment access from this important conference.
This issue includes our final reports:
- The unmet need for contraception services for women receiving ART
- Valacyclovir decreases plasma and genital viral loads in HSV-2/HIV-1 co-infected women
- HPV genotypes in HIV-positive women in Zimbabwe and Uganda
Abstracts for the meeting are online as soon as the conference opens, and many of the most important oral abstract sessions and overview sessions are posted as webcasts within a day or so. We encourage readers to go directly to the source for many of these sessions.
