Press release from: Informed Horizons, LLC

Dr. Alain Lafeuillade and Dr. Mario Stevenson, are pleased to announce the 5th International Workshop on HIV Persistence During Therapy, to be held December 6-9, 2011 in St Maarten, West Indies. The Workshop will be of invaluable importance for scientists working 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.

New Discoveries Expected at the Scientific Workshop on HIV Reservoirs
Tucker, GA - April 21, 2011 -- Controlling HIV replication without the need of life-long antiretroviral therapy (ART) is the next frontier scientists are addressing. Researchers involved in the fields of HIV reservoirs and eradication have just released the preliminary program of a workshop they will organize later this year, where scientific breakthroughs are expected. Fifteen years ago, when ART was discovered, a renewed optimism for a cure gained several scientists
Researchers United to Find a HIV cure
HIV persistence is an area of importance to many scientists working on a possible cure for HIV, and every two years a reference workshop is held to bring the world's top scientists together for a meeting of the minds. Researchers from several different fields will therefore attend its next edition, December 6-9, 2011. The preliminary program of this workshop has just been released, and the four-day seminar is packed with

Hidden HIV Revealed: New Insights Into Latent HIV Infections
In spite of ever more effective therapies, HIV keeps managing to survive in the body. A comprehensive project conducted by the Austrian Science Fund FWF has clarified the molecular processes which contribute to this effect. In the process, approaches were discovered for possible therapies to combat the hidden reservoir formed by the virus. Thanks to modern therapies, HIV infections have become controllable – but these treatments cannot provide a cure. Antiretroviral
