This may feel like just another week of HIV-related research exploration, but a vast research tide is about to crash onto the HIV care community's shores: CROI 2019, the largest annual HIV science conference in the U.S. We'll be sticking to our coverage of published, peer-reviewed manuscripts here at This Week in HIV Research, but urge you to read our CROI 2019 preview and follow our conference coverage as it unfolds beginning March 4.

In the meantime, let's take a look at some intriguing newly published findings regarding:

  • The relationship between internalized HIV stigma, depression, and adherence in women.
  • A better understanding of what the phrase "internalized HIV stigma" actually means.
  • A potential role for tenofovir-containing gel as a genital herpes preventive.
  • Reassuring data regarding the neurocognitive effects of cerebrospinal HIV escape.

Whether it's to read more about this week's array of studies or browse our upcoming coverage of CROI 2019, we hope you'll keep on tuning in for the latest in clinically relevant research findings. To beat HIV, you have to follow the science!
