Really Rapid Review -- CROI 2018, Boston

The 25th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) just wrapped up in warm, sunny Boston.

Everyone in attendance took advantage of the fine March weather to get some much-needed sun, to feel the sand between their toes, to sip a tropical drink, and to hear the latest in HIV research.

Well, the last part was true -- CROI clearly remains our best meeting, the only one that brings together so much high quality research from so many disciplines. Clinical, basic, and behavioral researchers all have a place here.

And though the meeting was bookended by a pair of Nor'easters -- the one at the start was a whopper, I thought my dog Louie would blow away in the wind -- the weather during most of the conference was actually not bad at all.

On to some highlights, a Really Rapid Review®, with apologies ahead of time for the poor organization. [TheBodyPRO Editor's Note: We've done our best to organize Sax's list of highlights by topic in the slides ahead.] As always, feel free to write in the comments section any important studies I might have missed.
