Antonio Urbina, M.D.

Longer-Acting Regimens and New Drugs to Treat Persistence

"I think that we're going to be moving to longer-acting agents. We're going to move to agents that can be injected or given through different routes. So I think that is going to be the new landscape. Also, I think we're looking at new compounds that are going to be available for our patients that have hard-to-treat HIV."

-- Antonio Urbina, M.D., Associate Medical Director, Spencer Cox Center for Health, St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital, New York.
