New tools to fight AIDS

Kenneth Mayer: Despite our great progress, we require better tools to fight AIDS. That is why there is so much excitement around this year’s annual Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, which will convene in Boston Feb. 22-25. We are going to learn more about two emerging tools to control the HIV/AIDS epidemic: prevention medicines that are easy to use and protect those who are HIV negative from infection, and advances in vaccine research.

Activists United and Ignited by Urgency for HIV Prevention in Europe: EATG and AVAC call for the rollout of PrEP as a proven HIV prevention strategy

Initiated and organised entirely by the community of people living with and at risk for HIV, the second European HIV Prevention Summit brought together representatives of civil society, the pharmaceutical industry, researchers and academia in Brussels between 29 and 31 January. In addition to a thorough examination of PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis), the summit discussed the latest developments in the research fields of vaccines, rectal and vaginal microbicides and antibodies and their utility in HIV prevention.

About that latest big Gates Foundation bet for HIV prevention

It isn’t too out of the ordinary for Gates Foundation grant awards to soar into the eight- and even nine-figure range. So, its $20 million grant to Moderna Therapeutics to support its continuing development of a novel but promising HIV prevention therapy isn’t particularly extraordinary. But what is unusual...is that the total potential commitment from the foundation could reach upwards of $100 million—around 70 percent of the Gates Foundation’s HIV/AIDS grants for all of last year.

AIDS pioneer finally brings AIDS vaccine to clinic

Human trials of more than 100 different AIDS vaccines have taken place since researchers proved in 1984 that HIV caused the disease. Robert Gallo, whose U.S. National Cancer Institute laboratory published the four landmark papers in Science that convinced the world of the link between this recently discovered retrovirus and the growing epidemic, has closely monitored—and often sharply critiqued—the AIDS vaccine search since it began. But Gallo, who now runs the Institute of Human Virology (IHV) in Baltimore, Maryland, has always been a spectator—until today.

Bold goal of stopping HIV is motivating great science

The massive challenge of finding an HIV vaccine has unleashed stunning creativity in laboratories all over the world. While we work toward the long-term goal of a vaccine, we are also pulling in partners from many sectors to improve prevention, treatment, and access to options in the short term.
