iPrEx Study Finds New Drug Reduces HIV Infection
The Gladstone Institutes - UCSF Mission Bay Campus
Can a pill prevent HIV? iPrEx, a large international study led by Gladstone Investigator Dr. Robert Grant, said “yes.” The study provided the first evidence that HIV infection can be prevented by a single daily tablet that combines two antiviral drugs. Time named the iPrEx study the #1 medical breakthrough of 2010.
Dr. Grant will describe these exciting findings and explain how they suggest a new strategy to help stop the HIV pandemic. The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion with leading experts in HIV prevention and a drag performance by Garza, a classically trained ballet dancer, choreographer, and LGBT activist.
