HIV-1 Protection and Control by Vaccination
joint with HIV Pathogenesis: Recent Advances in the Biology and Pathogenesis of Primate Lentiviruses
Organizer(s): M. Juliana McElrath, Gary J. Nabel and Daniel R. Littman
Date: April 05 - 11, 2002
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Sponsored by Wyeth-Lederle Vaccines
Summary of Meeting:
Recent progress in vaccine development offers hope that immunization may slow the HIV-1 epidemic. Insights into immune mechanisms of protection against HIV-1 infection and disease are emerging in clinical and animal studies, which can be applied to immunization strategies. New vaccines designed to elicit these immune responses are rapidly becoming available for implementation in human trials worldwide. Despite these advances, it remains unclear which approach is more likely to be efficacious, and if so, by what mechanism. The overall goal of this symposium is to accelerate understanding of the components necessary to prevent HIV-1 infection by vaccination, and to stimulate the scientific field to participate in moving this effort forward. The most current relevant studies will be integrated with recent advances in HIV pathogenesis and therapeutic interventions. The program will identify barriers to vaccine development, with the intent to foster new avenues of research collaborations that can overcome these hurdles.
