What are the most groundbreaking scientific findings in HIV over the past 12 months? Just ask Carlos Del Rio, M.D., a leading HIV clinician-researcher and professor of medicine at the Rollins School of Public Health within the Emory University School of Medicine.
At the IDWeek 2016 medical conference on Oct. 26, Del Rio provided a 30-minute whirlwind tour of the biggest, recent stories in clinically relevant HIV research. He focused on 18 major study findings that spanned the fields of epidemiology, prevention, treatment, complications and health care access. (He did not include cure research, which was covered in a separate, basic science talk at the conference.) He also shared "sound bite" takeaway messages he collected from most of the study authors.
Here we highlight those takeaway messages, which offer a valuable window into the thoughts and analyses of scientists at the center of today's most formative HIV research.
