Assessment of Needs
The IAS–USA offers this state-of-the-art activity as part of a nationwide continuing education effort for physicians on the evolving challenges of managing HIV disease. This webinar will discuss antiretroviral agents that are in clinical development or late stage preclinical development and very likely to enter human trials. Additionally, this webinar will review mechanisms of action, antiretroviral activity, and information on adverse events and side effect. Lastly, it will discuss where these drugs may fit into treatment strategies for people with HIV for those agents in the later stage of clinical development.
On completion of this webinar, learners will be able to:
- Describe why new antiretroviral are still needed for the treatment and prevention of HIV-1
- List at least 2 new antiretroviral agents that work by new mechanisms and are different from currently approved agents
- Summarize possible ways that long-acting antiretroviral agents will be administered in the future
