Using Antiretrovirals to Prevent HIV: Implications of the outcome of the CAPRISA 004 tenofovir-gel microbicide trial


Official satellite session

     Tuesday, 20 July, 18:30 - 20:30

     Mini Room 10

     Reed Messe Wien



The Global Campaign for Microbicides in partnership with CAPRISA, Treatment Action Campaign, and International AIDS Society - Industry Liason Forum invites you to join an exciting, topical, and interactive debate on the implications of the results from CAPRISA 004, the first ARV-based candidate microbicide trial.


The results of the CAPRISA 004 trial testing tenofovir gel as a vaginal microbicide will be announced on Tuesday 20 July at 1pm at AIDS 2010, Vienna. The Tuesday evening satellite aims to further explore the results with an in-depth discussion engaging the study’s two principal investigators. Leading scientists and advocates will debate the findings and their implications on the international HIV-biomedical prevention research agenda. They will explore the potential impact of microbicides on the HIV epidemic and ask the important question: what do these results mean for women?
