Italian Cohort of Antiretroviral Naïve Patients (ICONA)

Alessandro Cozzi Lepri

Italian cohort of patients naive from antiretrovirals was set up in April 1997. ICONA is a multicentre, observational study and patients were recruited mainly between April 1997 and March 1999. By September 2006 a total of 6,205 naive patients had been enrolled. The main focus of ICONA is the outcome of antiretroviral therapy. ICONA network is supported by unrestricted educational grant of GlaxoSmithKline, Italy. Individual projects are supported by grants of Italian AIDS Project, Istituto Superiore di Sanità, Rome. During 2007 the Icona Foundation was set up; as members of the Foundation there are several University and Research Centers and the cohort has changed its sponsorship, from a mono-sponsor (GSK Italy) to a multi-sponsor (several pharmaceutical companies: GSK, BMS; Abbott, Boehringer, Gilead, Pfizer).The study is coordinated from Italy by Prof Antonella d’Arminio Monforte (email at antonella.darminio@unimi.it).
