Towards an HIV Cure: Industry Collaboration Group
Case study 1: bnAbs: From prevention to cure
At IAS 2023, the Vaccine and Cure groups co-hosted a satellite event that focused on the high potential of bnAbs in prevention and cure of HIV and explored how the research and development of bnAbs for HIV prevention can contribute to the use of bnAbs in cure strategies. The satellite examined how efforts in the prevention and cure fields can be shared to develop bnAbs that benefit both areas of research. The session drew 130 participants, generating remarkable engagement: 10,558 impressions and 297 interactions on social media.
Case study 2: Africa HIV cure research: Strengthening industry-community engagement in clinical research
At AIDS 2022, the Cure group hosted a satellite session on how best to engage and involve communities of people living with HIV in end-to-end product development and, in particular, clinical research in Africa. Watch the satellite session here and find the report here.
Case study 3: Monitoring HIV Viral Load during ATI
In 2022, the group hosted a roundtable discussion that explored how best to perform point of care viral load testing in cure research involving analytical treatment interruptions (ATI) in low- and middle-income countries. To access the roundtable report, click here.
Case study 4: Non-invasive measurement of HIV reservoirs
In 2022, the group hosted a workshop to discuss innovative non-invasive technology for the measurement of HIV reservoirs in low- and middle-income countries. To access the workshop report, click here.
Case study 5: Linking community to strategy
In 2021, the Cure group hosted a satellite at IAS 2021, titled “IAS Industry Cure Collaboration Group: Linking community to strategy”. Members discussed cure strategies – where are we and what is in the pipeline – and identified how to engage communities in the next phases of HIV cure clinical studies.
