What: CONRAD Symposium: The Use of Antiviral Agents to Prevent HIV Transmission

When and Where: Monday, November 12th 2:00-3:40PM Boston Marriott Cambridge

CONRAD, a not for profit scientific organization based in Arlington, Virginia, specializes in developing new contraceptive methods and products to prevent or reduce HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. Several products in the pipeline focus on multi-purpose prevention options which provide contraception as well as HIV and STI protection. CONRAD tested and developed tenofovir gel, the first drug to show proof of concept that a vaginal gel containing antiretrovirals can reduce HIV and HSV-2 infections when used before and after sex.

Tenofovir is a drug commonly used by those infected with HIV to prevent the virus from multiplying in the immune system. A clinical study of women in South Africa who used a vaginal gel containing tenofovir has shown that it is 40-54 percent effective in reducing sexual transmission when used before and after sex.
