52nd International Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC), 9-12 September 2012, San Francisco
The annual ICAAC conferences tend to have such a reduced focus on HIV in recent years that i-Base rarely prioritises attending this meeting.
Also, unlike most HIV meetings, only limited access is provided to abstracts and presentations. This is not a good model for health news. Some reports are restricted to data that was included in the abstract which have very limited peer review.
So the few articles included in this issue are to highlight potentially interesting studies that will hopefully be presented with greater detail and better access at either the HIV Congress in Glasgow in November, or at CROI in Atlanta in March next year.
For a limited period, abstracts and sessions can be searched and browsed online:

Reports in this issue of HTB are:
