Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and Kaposi's Sarcoma, 1983


Scope and Contents

The meeting addressed the increasingly pressing public health problem presented by acquired immunodeficiencysyndrome (AIDS).This meeting, by bringing together immunologists, epidemiologists, pathologists, virologists,and public health officials in a small,informal yet intensive environment,proved particularly useful fo rsetting priorities and developing a greater coherence of effort in approaches to this growing health concern.It was fairly clear,by the meeting's conclusion,that a consensus was developing for a concerted search for a blood-borne viral agent,the properties of which could at least begin to be loosely defined.Subsequent events are tending to bear out the soundness of what was then still a tentative and perhaps somewhat controversial proposal.
