- Tenofovir/FTC backbone outperforms AZT/3TC (Combivir) with efavirenz in treatment naive patients; reduced toxicity drives ITT viral efficacy
Over the last few years the Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC) has had a reduced focus on HIV. This years meeting however included several important oral presentations and posters of interest.
ICAAC still maintains a restricted approach to making the research presented at these annual meetings available publicly. Although the website currently includes searchable abstracts, webcasts of many oral sessions, and the slides from some of these presentations, this is only for one month after the conference. The meeting is then available on CD Rom for around $300, but the public access stops. Notably, this conference still refuses to allow these abstract to join the online resource developed by AEGiS.org.
Unfortunately, abstracts that are currently available on the conference website are linked to pop-up windows, and this means that we are not able to provide direct weblinks for referenced articles in the way HTB does for routine conference coverage.
Abstracts can nevertheless be browsed and searched from this web address:
