New Issue of Px Wire

April 20, 2015
Dear Advocates,
The new issue of Px Wire, AVAC’s quarterly newsletter on HIV prevention research and implementation, is now available.
Click here to download.
In this issue, you’ll find:
  • Updates on how WHO is approaching broader guidance on oral PrEP—and what advocates think should happen next.
  • A closer look at passive immunization, an expanding area of research referring to the administration of laboratory-generated antibodies. Passive immunization is being explored in people living with HIV in attempts to help control viral replication and/or serve as part of a cure strategy. It is also being explored for HIV prevention.
  • And this issue’s centerspread provides a quick primer on passive immunization with HIV-specific antibodies, long-acting antiretroviral injectables, and preventive vaccines, including a new, informative table reviewing the pipelines in research and development for all three research avenues.
The full issue of Px Wire, as well as our archive of old issues and information on ordering print copies, can be found at

As always, we welcome your questions and comments at
