The Italian HIV Community and EACS mourns the loss of Professor Mauro Moroni - an inspiring physician, mentor and cofounder of the European AIDS Clinical Society

On July 20, Professor Mauro Moroni passed away at the age of seventy seven after a short illness. With his death one of the most charismatic infectious diseases doctors of Italy has gone.

In Italy and especially in his home city of Milan, he was the first pioneer and face during the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 80’s and early 90’s. Always engaged in numerous initiatives to fight off HIV/AIDS he was one of the founding members of the European AIDS Clinical Society. Until his retirement in 2009, he was Director of the Infectious Diseases Institute of the University of Milan. But more important, he was a very human person, always open to listen and help.  He had that rare ability to give energy and enthusiasm to those close to him whilst viewing problems sensibly and rationally; to many of us he was a dear colleague, mentor and source of inspiration.

 

His departure leaves an empty space in the HIV/AIDS Italian community.

NIAID announces findings from the START study

Today, May 27th, the results from the START study were announced. START - a major international randomized clinical trial - has found that HIV-positive individuals have a considerably lower risk of developing AIDS or other serious illnesses if they start taking antiretroviral drugs sooner, when their CD4+ T-cell count—a key measure of immune system health—is higher, instead of waiting until the CD4+ cell count drops to lower levels. Together with data from previous studies showing that antiretroviral treatment reduced the risk of HIV transmission to uninfected sexual partners, these findings support offering treatment to everyone with HIV.
