The Cancer, Immunity, and the Microenvironment Program of the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (HDFCCC) is pleased to host the HIV Malignancies Symposium on Thursday, November 21st. The event will be held from 1pm-5pm in HSW-301 on the Parnassus Campus.
Unlike the classic AIDS-defining malignancies, the incidence of many non-AIDS-defining malignancies, including HPV-associated malignancies, in HIV-infected men and women has increased since the introduction of antiretroviral therapy. At the same time, there is a critical need for new approaches in the field of HIV-related malignancies and their precursors. The mechanisms underlying the increased risk of HIV-associated cancers in the setting of HIV infection remain poorly understood. Newer, targeted molecular approaches to prevention or treatment of cancers occurring in the setting of HIV infection are urgently needed.
