CROI 2011 Starts Today

With a fresh 4 inches of snow on the ground in Boston, the 18th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) starts today.

Pocket program is available here (PDF format).  Based on a (very) quick perusal, we can expect the following:

  • Progress (lots of it) in prevention, with more from CAPRISA and iPrEx and the whole “treatment as prevention” theme
  • Welcome HIV specialists to the new age of HCV therapeutics
  • Several big clinical trials, including more details on once-daily raltegravir and studies on early vs deferred ART for HIV-related TB
  • Numerous posters and presentations on cardiovascular, renal, neoplastic and bone complications
  • Diverse studies on the maturing treatment programs in resource-limited settings

As always with CROI — which is the most concentrated (in a good way) of our scientific meetings — there will be a ton of miscellaneous other interesting stuff.

Come back here later for a more detailed summary and (if they announce it) the date of the 2012 conference!
