6. Retroviruskonferenz 1999 in Chicago

Teil I
  • Ulrich Marcus


Mehr als 3000 HIV-Expererten aus Praxis und Forschung kamen vom 31. Januar bis 4. Februar 1999 zur 6. Retroviruskonferenz in Chicago zusammen. Die Tagung konzentriert sich in erster Linie auf Fragen der HIV-Grundlagenforschung und Therapieentwicklung, sie gilt neben der Internationalen AIDS-Konferenz als bedeutendste internationale, wissenschaftliche Konferenz zu HIV und AIDS. Die wichtigsten Ergebnisse der Konferenz wurden für Sie zusammengefaßt: Teil I des Berichtes informiert vor allem über epidemiologische und Präventionsaspekte sowie über den Stand der Impfdiskussion. Teil II (folgt in Heft 6/99) berichtet über Therapie und Immunrekonstitution.
