AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses was the very first AIDS publication in the field over 30 years ago, and today it is still the critical resource advancing research in retroviruses, including AIDS. The Journal provides the broadest coverage from molecular biology to clinical studies and outcomes research, focusing on developments of novel therapeutics and immune-restorative approaches. Cutting-edge papers on the latest progress and research advances through clinical trials and examination of targeted antiretroviral agents lead to improvements in translational medicine for optimal treatment outcomes.

AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses coverage includes:

  • Molecular biology of HIV and SIV
  • Developments in HIV pathogenesis and vaccine research
  • Cure research
  • HIV prevention science
      - Topical PreP (microbicides)
  • Rapid publication of emerging sequence information
  • Molecular biology, immunology, and epidemiology of HTLV
  • Pharmacology of HIV therapy
  • Social and behavioral science
