AVAC Launches Px Wire

AVAC recently launched Px Wire, which will track key developments in the field of HIV prevention research, including the launch of new trials, results of ongoing studies, and an up-to-date tally of trials going on worldwide.

Px Wire is designed to complement AVAC's other publications and to help advocates stay on top of the ever-changing field of HIV prevention research. It is the first one-stop source for information on the full range of HIV prevention research going on worldwide, including vaccines, microbicides, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), herpes simplex virus-2 treatment, male circumcision, cervical barrier methods, and partner treatment.

Every three months, Px Wire will provide:

* A center foldout poster with:
o An updated comprehensive timeline of efficacy trials of new biomedical HIV prevention trials worldwide
o A world map showing where various strategies are being tested
* A tally of experimental prevention strategies in all phases of clinical development
* Brief news bulletins and "AVAC's take" on current events
* A calendar of upcoming meetings

The first issue is available. Additional resources including the Px Wire archive, information about subscribing, reprint requests and bulk orders can be found here.
