While biomedical HIV prevention was a major focus, the conference also included several studies looking at refinements to antiretroviral therapy (ART), including reducing the dose of efavirenz (Sustiva), the new integrase inhibitor dolutegravir, and second-line therapy using raltegravir.

"As mature as our field is, we still continue to learn new things," said Cohen, from the Community Research Initiative of New England.
