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.

A Tribute to Professor Martin Fisher

21 APRIL 2015

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of our colleague Professor Martin Fisher, leading HIV clinician and researcher based in Brighton, the United Kingdom. Through many years of prolific work, Professor Fisher established himself as a firm advocate for high standards of HIV care. He was a talented researcher and a great educator, and gave generously of his talents in many of the EACS activities, in particular as a much appreciated faculty member of the EACS Advanced HIV Course. It is difficult for us to imagine a course, a conference, another EACS event without Martin. We enjoyed his charismatic and warm personality, and will treasure the memories of the many professional and social moments we shared. He will be sorely missed.
