Ondine Congratulates Dr. Bryon Bhagwandin For Presenting His Research At The International AIDS Society Conference 2011

Ondine is pleased to congratulate Dr. Bryon Bhagwandin of Vitalwave™ on the publication of his abstract at the International AIDS Society (IAS) Conference. This is an important accomplishment as it highlights the need to develop new approaches in preventing mother-to-child HIV transmission.

Dr. Bhagwandin’s study evaluated the use of antimicrobial Photodynamic Therapy (aPDT), also known as Photodisinfection, as a means to reduce the vaginal viral load of pregnant women infected with HIV/AIDS.

March 10th is the annual National Women & Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
