Conference abstracts and reports


AEGis (AIDS Education Global Information System) has provided a huge library of AIDS information free to the world for over 12 years. Just one of its projects puts AIDS conference abstracts online, when no one else has done so.

In the current issue of AIDS Treatment News there is an interview with Sister Mary Elizabeth about the AEGiS online conference abstract database.

XV Intl AIDS Conference, Bangkok

Mark Mascolini’s report from the Bangkok Conference

IAPAC conference articles are always essential reading, and a couple of months after most of the media attention has been forgotten, is sometimes the best time to re-read an in-depth report.

New Google research tool

New web page on HIV drug deliberations

A new Food and Drug Administration Web page consolidates reports from HIV/AIDS-related advisory committee meetings to make accessing them easier. The site lists advisory committee meetings held since 1996; records are indexed by topic and year. Meetings related to drugs, biologics and medical devices are documented.

The site will be updated to include records of future meetings.

Most records include the meeting announcement, committee rosters, briefing materials and transcripts.

Links to other websites are current at date of posting but not maintained.
