Town Hall: HIV Cure Research

6/12/2015; 77 minutes

Although antiretroviral therapy has dramatically extended the life of HIV infected individuals, the life-long daily regimen of pills is not a cure. The drugs' side effects lead to various complications such as increased incidence of heart disease and cancer that significantly reduces lifespans. Based on this reality, the recent isolated reports of individuals being cured of HIV infection have brought a lot of excitement as well as cautiousness. Brief presentations by a distinguished lineup of clinicians, researchers and advocates, many of whom have dedicated their life's work toward finding a cure for HIV infection, address where we are with a cure for HIV.
