Scientists Move Towards A HIV Cure


      

Toulon, France, May 29, 2011 -- Dr. Alain Lafeuillade, Toulon, France and Dr. Mario Stevenson, University of Miami, USA are pleased to announce the 5th International Workshop on HIV Persistence During Therapy, to be held December 6-9, 2011. This Workshop will include the participation of the finest scientific minds in the world. As these researchers progressively move towards developing a HIV Cure, the continuing exchange of information, data, and experiments in a highly dedicated meeting is of utmost importance.

The International Workshop provides an invaluable tool for scientists who are working towards a cure for this pandemic to share important information regarding their research. More than 7,000 people each day are infected with HIV/AIDS. Since 1981, more than 60 million people have been infected, with half of those already died from HIV/AIDS. The expense of antiretroviral treatment for patients is astronomical and the attempts to provide universal access to treatment and care has proven financially unsustainable. Therefore, the only solution to this disease is to find a cure. The issues that have been identified as scientists have made major advances in finding a cure, has been the disinterest of investors and lack of commitment on the part of most politicians.

Since the 2008, cure of the Berlin Patient, the feasibility of a cure for HIV has become more viable and researchers throughout the world are taking different approaches to addressing the infection.

Sessions at this year's International Workshop will include, but are not limited to:

BASIC SCIENCE OF HIV PERSISTENCE

VIROLOGICAL ASPECTS OF HIV PERSISTENCE

INNATE IMMUNITY AND HIV PERSISTENCE

IMMUNE CONTROL OF HIV RESERVOIRS

ACUTE HIV INFECTION

ANATOMIC RESERVOIRS

NEW APPROACHES & ERADICATION TRIALS

Speakers and presenters from around the world will be joining the Workshop to share their research findings and information. This will be a great opportunity to expand your knowledge-base as well as your network of scientists and researchers working towards the same goal. The invaluable information you will find at the Workshop will provide the catalyst for substantial dialogue and information sharing.
