This is a National meeting in Spain. Dr. Ian McGowan will be giving a talk on long acting (LA) antiretroviral therapy (ART) for HIV prevention (PrEP) and treatment. This approach is gathering a lot of excitement as it might allow people at risk of HIV infection to have an injection every two months in order to protect them from acquiring HIV infection. The same approach, using two drugs, could be used for the treatment of HIV infection. LA ART is an exciting idea and there are several large studies ongoing to define the safety and effectiveness of this strategy. Dr. McGowan’s talk will review progress in this area and discuss a number of challenges that will need to be sorted out before LA PrEP and ART are ready for use in the clinic.
