Retroviruses conference reassuring on new treatments, viral targets, research.
Here is an overview on lipoatrophy -- fat wasting -- a problem our readers have asked about. In future issues we expect to cover new drugs, treatment interruption, other lipodystrophy and drug side effects, and many other topics.
Note: the '-M', '-T', or '-W' in the abstract numbers in this conference just means that the presentation was a poster on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. 'LB' in the abstract name means Late Breaker -- new research results that could not be submitted by the regular deadline but were considered important enough to be accepted anyway.
