Despite the progress that has been made, elements including HIV disease heterogeneity and geographical variation pose challenges to HIV clinical trials.
TORONTO (PRWEB) February 15, 2021
Since 2010, the world has witnessed significant advancements in the management of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), with treatment strategies shifting from antiretroviral therapies to novel treatments such as single-dose medications and injections. Despite the progress that has been made, elements including HIV disease heterogeneity and geographical variation pose challenges to HIV clinical trials.
How can the drug development industry overcome these challenges to support the HIV community by advancing novel treatment options? What best practices can be used to improve management of infectious disease clinical trials? These barriers require sponsors to rethink the way that they manage infectious disease clinical trials, and call for innovative research strategies and access to novel technologies.
Topics that the panelists will explore include:
- The state of the current HIV treatment landscape
- Innovations on the horizon for HIV treatment and prevention — from gene-based therapies to CAR T-cell immunotherapies
- Benefits of incorporating decentralized and agile clinical trial models
- How digital health technologies are improving adherence to antiretroviral therapies
- The new outlook for HIV for 2021 and beyond
