NIAID AIDS Vaccine Research Subcommittee to Meet
May 30 to Discuss PAVE 100 Study
Watch Live Via Webcast


On Friday, May 30, 2008, the AIDS Vaccine Research Subcommittee (AVRS), a component of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) AIDS Research Advisory Committee, will meet in Bethesda, Md., to discuss the proposed HIV vaccine study known as PAVE 100.

During the meeting, the study’s proposed protocol design will be presented along with a discussion of the community consultations that have been conducted thus far concerning the trial. The status of the PAVE 100 study will not be decided at the close of the AVRS meeting. Rather, at this meeting, the AVRS is expected to provide to NIAID a technical assessment of the proposed study and its investigational vaccine. Using this assessment and other pertinent input, a decision as to whether to move forward with PAVE 100 will be made by NIAID Director Anthony S. Fauci, M.D.


The meeting will be held at the Bethesda North Marriott and Conference Center, 5701 Marinelli Road, North Bethesda, Md. 20852. Onsite registration will be available.

The AVRS meeting will be Webcast live on May 30.
