Researchers Unveil HIV Persistence & Reservoirs Meeting Advanced Program

The Steering Committee has just announced the preliminary program of the next edition of the workshop, to be held December 6-9, 2011.

Toulon, France - April 08, 2011 - Despite major improvements in life expectancy and quality of life with antiretroviral therapy, today's treatment cannot cure HIV infection. To try to eradicate HIV from infected individuals, researchers must figure out where the virus hides and how persistent infection is established in these sites. They have also to screen and test new kinds of drugs able to reach HIV in its 'dormant' state.

The prospect of efficiently controlling HIV persistence in infected persons without permanent antiretroviral therapy is the hard task a group of researchers has addressed since 2003. By organizing every 2-year the "International Workshop on HIV Persistence, Reservoirs & Eradication Strategies", they sum-up their current advances in the field.

The Steering Committee has just announced the preliminary program of the next edition of the workshop, to be held December 6-9, 2011.

The previous workshops have been very successful with more than 150 top class scientists from all across the globe attending it. The workshop is an excellent opportunity for these delegates to interact and share information with other researchers, governmental agencies, patients representatives and pharmaceutical companies.
