As the area of HIV and the investigation of other infectious conditions continues to expand, so too does the list of conferences that are utilized in the updating of the PPMD. The list of conferences evaluated for specific drug interactions includes, but is not limited to the following:

  • Congress / European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL)
