One thought on “NYBC Welcomes Nelson Vergel • Friday March 30

  1. Thanks to Nelson for continuing the conversation with our New York City NYBC members!

    He started by talking about the “cure,” a new theme in HIV research, brought to the forefront, remarkably enough, by the case of one patient. Nelson provided some great background, plus a quick review of the “cure” research at the 2012 Seattle conference on retroviruses and opportunistic infections.

    Also discussed: best practices and preventive steps to use in coping with aging with HIV, and what and how to take in the supplement department (B vitamins, carnitine, Vitamin D at the top of Nelson’s personal list).
