2013 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections*

March 3-6, 2013; Atlanta, Georgia
Join expert faculty members Joseph J. Eron, Jr., MD; Joel E. Gallant, MD, MPH; William G. Powderly, MD; Kimberly Y. Smith, MD, MPH; Kathleen E. Squires, MD; and Andrew R. Zolopa, MD, for a review of the HIV highlights of this important annual conference.

Clinical Impact of New Data From Atlanta: Comorbidities and Coinfection


A robust early immunologic response significantly reduced the risk for virus-related non-AIDS–defining cancers, underscoring the need for effective ART, particularly among patients with poor immunologic status.

Released: March 7, 2013

Increased risk of HSILs detected by random biopsy was associated with greater number of HSILs detected by standard biopsy, whereas oncogenic HPV infection, provider/venue were associated with increased risk of HSILs detected by random or standard biopsy.

Released: March 10, 2013

High incidence of early deaths in patients initiating first-line ART during antifungal induction therapy for CM vs deferring ART until ≥ 5 weeks after CM diagnosis.

Released: March 14, 2013

A 4-month regimen with twice-weekly rifapentine 900 mg plus moxifloxacin in the continuation phase was safe but demonstrated inferior efficacy compared with an isoniazid-containing control regimen.

Released: March 10, 2013

In this small dose-finding study, rifampin doses up to 35 mg/kg were safe, well tolerated, and more active than the currently used 10-mg/kg dose in patients with newly diagnosed TB.

Released: March 10, 2013

Nearly 90% of HCV treatment-naive patients and previous relapsers met the criteria for response-guided therapy and received a shortened treatment duration, of whom 75% attained SVR12.

Released: March 8, 2013

SVR8 attained by 93% to 96% of patients in the 12-week arms; both regimens safe and generally well tolerated, with anemia and grade 3/4 bilirubin increases in the RBV-containing treatment arms only.

Released: March 10, 2013

In a single-center pilot study, a 12-week course of telaprevir and peginterferon/ribavirin in MSM with acute genotype 1 HCV infection was associated with an SVR24 rate of 79%.

Released: March 10, 2013

Rates of virologic suppression in both plasma and cerebrospinal fluid were also lower in patients who received CNS-targeted vs non-CNS–targeted therapy, possibly due to lower CD4+ cell count nadir and higher prevalence of HCV coinfection in patients who received CNS-targeted therapy.

Released: March 6, 2013

In interim analysis, 82% of HCV treatment–naive patients and 91% of previous relapsers coinfected with HIV attained HCV RNA below lower limit of quantitation with faldaprevir plus peginterferon/ribavirin at Week 12 of therapy.

Released: March 10, 2013

Non-AIDS–defining cancer diagnoses occurred approximately 7 months earlier in HIV-infected adults vs HIV-uninfected adults.

Released: March 8, 2013

Modelling data suggest relative risk for CVD or CHD increased slightly faster in HIV-infected patients vs general population controls, but relative risk for MI was not increased.

Released: March 7, 2013

Preferential HCV reinfection of HIV-infected MSM with genotypes other than the primary infection suggests original infection confers partial immunity to similar genotype.

Released: March 10, 2013

The use of interventions post-MI, including CVD risk-lowering medications and invasive cardiovascular procedures, has increased since 1999 for HIV-infected patients.

Released: March 7, 2013

Greater mortality risk reduction was observed with exposure to atorvastatin and rosuvastatin—considered potent statins—as compared with all statins.
