The 38th Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC) was notable for not having any oral sessions on opportunistic infections. This is an indication of the enormous success of combination antiretroviral therapy, which has greatly reduced the occurrences of opportunistic infections. Hepatitis C was discussed at the conference, but it was treated as a co-morbid condition rather than an opportunistic infection. Two studies addressed the question of stopping pneumocystis prophylaxis in patients responding to antiretroviral therapy. Other issues discussed included mycobacterium avium complex (MAC), cytomegalovirus (CMV), and pyogenic bacterial infections.
