The new issue of Px Wire, AVAC’s quarterly newsletter on HIV prevention research and implementation, is now available.
In this issue, you’ll find:
- Updates on how WHO is approaching broader guidance on oral PrEP—and what advocates think should happen next.
- A closer look at passive immunization, an expanding area of research referring to the administration of laboratory-generated antibodies. Passive immunization is being explored in people living with HIV in attempts to help control viral replication and/or serve as part of a cure strategy. It is also being explored for HIV prevention.
- And this issue’s centerspread provides a quick primer on passive immunization with HIV-specific antibodies, long-acting antiretroviral injectables, and preventive vaccines, including a new, informative table reviewing the pipelines in research and development for all three research avenues.
