CUREiculum Webinar Series: Early ART
April 2, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The CUREiculum is a suite of tools that provides simple, accessible information on HIV cure research. As part of the effort to increase research literacy around cure, the CUREiculum team, a collaboration of community educators, researchers and advocacy organizations, will be presenting a webinar series that focus on issue-specific topics crucial to understanding the research landscape.
Thursday, April 2nd at 11 am ET
Dr. Jintanat Ananworanich, Associate Director for Therapeutics Research at the U.S. Military HIV Research Program (MHRP) of the Walter Reed Army Institute for Research (WRAIR), will present the scientific mechanisms of early treatment and explain how it relates to HIV cure research. Administering early antiretroviral therapy can have a significant impact on limiting the reservoir- the cells that contain non-replicating HIV- in an HIV-positive individual. Starting ART very early after HIV infection has been linked to very low viral loads and even to apparent “remission” (periods of no detectable viral load)
