We are pleased to announce the 9th International Workshop on Clinical Pharmacology of HIV Therapy to be held on April 7 - 9, 2008 in New Orleans, USA.
Pharmacological factors are an important cause of therapeutic failure during antiretroviral treatment. Inadequate exposure of HIV to drugs may be caused by non-adherence, drug interactions and variations in drug pharmacokinetics due to a variety of genetic and drug-specific characteristics.
The 9th edition of the International Workshop on Clinical Pharmacology will provide a comprehensive update of various topics, such as newly detected drug-drug interactions, drug-induced toxicity, pharmacokinetics of investigational agents, generic drug use in resource-poor countries, and post-marketing surveillance projects. The workshop will also present the current state of the art on predicting drug interactions, designing drug interaction studies, and performing therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM).
The format of the meeting will consist of oral presentations, poster sessions, Q&A-sessions, roundtable discussions and plenary presentations by invited speakers.
This meeting will provide an excellent opportunity to researchers and scientists to share the latest scientific developments in the field.
We are excited to inform that this HIV pharmacology workshop is linked with the 3rd International Hepatitis pharmacology workshop (9 and 10 April). This will enable you to participate in both meetings or attend the joint session on 9 April.
The meeting will be held at the Omni Royal Hotel, in the swinging city of New Orleans. We hope you will be able to join us in this important conference and look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!
