Unofficial CROI 2012 Dates: March 4-10, in Seattle

No, there’s nothing up yet (as of July 5, 2011) on the official CROI web site. But someone was kind enough to send me this link that lists upcoming meetings in Seattle.  Here’s an extract: Note that only those events with green shading are “Definite.” And since these dates haven’t yet been confirmed by the CROI-meisters, it’s […]

And Now, for a More Comprehensive CROI Report …

Although I’ve already provided a Really Rapid Review™ of the 18th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI), the editors of Journal Watch/AIDS Clinical Care have put together a more comprehensive summary here. I sometimes wonder what research from these conferences will not only stand the test of time, but will grow in importance and […]

Really Rapid Review of CROI 2011 — and No CROI 2012 Dates

With CROI 2011 now officially over, I offer below the following Really Rapid Review™ for ID/HIV Specialists with limited time — or for those who said they went to the conference but spent the entire week shopping in the Prudential Mall and eating at Legal Seafood: Lots on PrEP.  Bottom line — it works if you take […]

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 […]

CROI 2010 Recap: No Obvious Blockbusters, But …

Ok, I’ll admit it — I didn’t see any studies presented at CROI this year that will immediately transform HIV care on a day-to-day basis.  Nothing that will alter practice right now. Nothing like last year’s NA-ACCORD, or 2008’s surprising DAD study, or 2007’s raltegravir studies, to name a few recent examples. (All subsequently published, of course — links are to […]

CROI 2010 Dates and Location Announced

February 16-20, 2010, San Francisco — at least according to John Mellors during his opening remarks here in Montreal. Is it really one day longer?  [Update — no, it’s Feb 17-20.] Really during the week of Presidents’ Day?  (School vacation week in New England … but I realize you can’t make everyone happy with schedules.) In other […]

Salmonella, CDC, and How to Prevent a Cold

Today’s ID/HIV Link-o-Rama is being brought to you from the frozen tundra of Boston, MA: This past summer’s salmonella outbreak that sickened more than 1000 people was linked to raw jalapeno and serrano peppers.  In the current one, the suspected culprit is contaminated peanut butter.  Aside from the fact that raw hot peppers and peanut butter in […]

The Big HIV News from ICAAC/IDSA

Tons of interesting stuff at this year’s combined ICAAC/IDSA meeting, most of it in non-HIV related Infectious Diseases.  In aggregate, literally hundreds of posters, presentations, and symposia on MRSA, C diff, osteomyelitis, complicated UTIs, hospital-acquired pneumonia, antibiotic resistance … It’s a great meeting to catch up on general ID, and the literature review sessions alone […]

When (and Where) in the World is the 2009 Retrovirus Conference?

The Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections — “CROI” — is the premiere scientific and clinical conference in the HIV world.  Every February, thousands of serious scientists and clinicians huddle in some frozen northern city, spending three and a half days intensely reviewing the latest and greatest in the field. So it’s time for an annual […]
