Translational research models and novel adjunctive therapies for neuroAIDS

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The goal of this component of the meeting was to discuss novel therapeutics that attenuate inflammatory pathways, enhance drug delivery into the brain and/or bypass the blood-brain barrier (BBB). Presentations included discussions of (i) antiretroviral drugs packaged into nanoparticles by Howard Gendelman, (ii) how to engage the nasal epithelium and its closely associated neural fibers as a route for drug entry to the brain, by William H. Frey and Lynn Pulliam, and (iii) antioxidant gene delivery to neurons using vector systems that can protect neurons against HIV-associated toxicity, by David Strayer. The session was capped by active discourse among leaders in the field of adjunctive therapies in a broad range of scientific disciplines.
