Update on the Malaysian Flight MH17 Tragedy

Posted on

While the number of AIDS 2014 Conference attendees on the plane has been significantly reduced, it is confirmed that among those killed was Dr. Joep Lange, a prominent AIDS researcher, known for his early work in triple combination therapies for HIV/AIDS, as well as the current energy behind assessing “community viral load” as a means of combating the spread of HIV.  Two links follow, the first a video from MSNBC which discusses Dr. Lange’s work and impact on the epidemic, the second a NY Times piece on Dr. Lange from early this morning. http://www.msnbc.com/all-in-with-chris-hayes/watch/the-aids-cure-may-have-been-on-that-plane-308196419875 http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/19/health/leading-aids-researcher-killed-in-malaysia-airlines-crash.html?_r=0 July 18, 2014: It has been confirmed that among those killed on Malaysian Flight MH17 were “as many as 100 researchers” headed to AIDS 2014 Conference in Australia. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jul/18/aids-conference-says-100-researchers-may-have-been-on-board-crashed-plane
