Monday's Plenary Session

Researchers speaking in the first plenary session of the 5th IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention (IAS 2009) offered insights into current and future HIV prevention research and examined genetics and HIV-related inflammation as avenues for new treatments. The presentations, which also included data on the use of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) for prevention and an update on strategies to reduce maternal transmission of HIV, reflect the breadth of expertise among the more than 5,000 researchers, clinicians and community leaders attending the conference, which runs from 19-22 July in Cape Town.

The press release is available

Also at Monday's session, the IAS and Agence Nationale de Recherces sur le SIDA (ANRS) announced Young Investigator Awards for abstract presenters under the age of 35.

Update: A webcast of the session is now available.
