  • Why not eliminate HTLV-1 while eliminating HIV-1? We need HTLV-1 PEP/PrEP clinical trials

    28 November 2023

    As a former elected member of the Virology Division, it has been my honour to help shape the scientific content of the Annual Conference for the past three years.

Microbes affect us all, the recent Covid pandemic made that very clear to us all. Here, Dr Fabiola Martin and I ask for your support in our call to include a not so well known, yet disabling and often deadly virus, human T-lymphotropic virus-1 (HTLV-1), to be included in HIV-1 pre-exposure clinical trials.
