IAS 2013 conference program live online
Date:5/8/2013

Wednesday, 8 May 2013 (Geneva, Switzerland) - Strategies for pursuing an HIV cure, the impact of starting antiretroviral therapy at higher CD4 counts and innovative models for HIV testing and care feature heavily in the IAS 2013 programme announced today.

"Functional cures" and the benefits of early antiretroviral therapeutic treatment have attracted international headlines this year and the IAS 20I3 conference, the worlds leading open HIV scientific forum, will provide researchers with an opportunity to both take stock of the years developments and consider new ground-breaking studies, confirming that a revolution in HIV science is gathering momentum.

Steve Deeks will open the conference on Sunday evening together with eminent speakers from the Malaysian government. Deeks will outline his latest work looking at HIV as an inflammatory disease, describing how inflammation affects health during antiretroviral treatment and how this process might affect cure studies.

Deborah Persaud, lead researcher on the "Mississippi Baby" study will participate in a pediatric symposium and will emphasize on the potential for curing newborn children with HIV infection by following the strategy used with this baby providing standard antiretroviral therapy within the first days of life while HIV infection is still being confirmed. The case suggests that very early treatment may prevent establishment of latent HIV infection, which is an obstacle to curing people with chronic HIV infection.

Laurent Hocqueloux, one of the doctors entrusted with the care of the so called VISCONTI Cohort of 14 patients (Sez-Cirin A, et al. PLoS Pathogens. 2013; 9:e1003211), will present another study of 283 people starting antiretroviral therapy (ART) during chronic infection at various CD4 count levels.
