Late Breakers at the Forthcoming Workshop on HIV Persistence, Reservoirs and Eradication Strategies.

LB-abstractsThe 5th International Workshop on HIV Persistence, Reservoirs and Eradication Strategies will be held in Sint Maarten on December 6-9, 2011. The meeting will welcome more than 215 international scientists actively involved in the field of HIV persistence and the search of a cure. The workshop is supported by the NIH and the ANRS. High quality abstracts have been selected for oral or poster presentations with a deadline on September 9th. However, as several participants asked for the possibility to submit their work as late breakers, we have added a session and highly selected more abstracts both for oral or poster presentations. This second deadline was November 15th. We are now able to give you the content of the oral LB session.


The Oral Late Breaker Session is scheduled on Thursday 8 December 2011.
