Missing conferences followup: four meetings' history found.

Our last issue listed major AIDS conferences that were missing--the abstracts were not available anywhere online, and neither the U.S. National Library of Medicine nor the organization that sponsored the conference had a printed or electronic copy. Since the article appeared the first four International AIDS Conference abstracts have been found, and AEGIS (http://www.aegis.org) is now working to get them online. When that work is complete, all the International AIDS Conference abstracts will be available throughout the world. (The 2004 conference in Bangkok can be searched at a different site, http://www.iasociety.org/ejias/search.asp?).

The other conference abstracts we listed are still missing:

* Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, numbers 1 and 2.

* International Conference on [)rug Therapies in HIV Infection (Glasgow, Scotland), numbers 1, 3, and 4.

* International Workshop on Adverse Drug Reactions and Lipodystrophy in HIV, numbers 2 and 3.

* International HIV Drug Resistance Workshop, numbers 1 through 10.

If you know of a library or private copy of any of these (either print or electronic) that Sister Mary Elizabeth of AEGIS may be able to borrow, let her know. She will negotiate permission with the conference sponsors before releasing the information online. Call her at 940-2485843, 8 a.m. to 4 pm. weekdays Pacific time, or write to AEGIS, 32234 Paseo Adelanto, Suite B, San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675-3622.
