Associate Professor Mark Boyd

"SECOND-LINE comprehensive results."

Tuesday 10th March 2015
1pm - 2pm

The seminar will present a summary of results to date from the SECOND-LINEstudy including the full 96 week follow-up data, results from the DXA-substudy to 96 weeks (body composition and bone mineral density changes), as well as exploratory analyses of the relationship between baseline NtRTI resistnace and virological outcomes and the relationship between HIV clade and resistance mutations after virological failure of a standard first-line NNRTI+2NtRTI regimen.  
I have broad interests in the field of HIV/AIDS including the conduct of interventional clinical trials to provide the evidence for its optimal management across high-, middle- and low-income countries. We work with a very broad and engaged network of research collaborators in Asia, Australasia, Europe, Canada, Latin America, and sub-Saharan Africa. Other interests include tuberculosis and in particular HIV/TB co-infection as well as investigation of antiretroviral toxicity and the bioethics of the conduct of research trials.
