The IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox Training Stands Alone

The IAPAM leads its competitors in offering the most complete botox training and aesthetic medicine education in North America. In 2011, attendees at the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium will have the competitive advantage of learning from board-certified dermatologists and experts in the fields of botox training, lasers and light devices, dermal fillers, hCG for weight loss, medical grade chemical peels and medical micordermabrasion. Beyond the hands-on botox training and aesthetic medicine instruction, the resources physicians receive from the IAPAM position it as the most respected physician training available.

Las Vegas, NV, January 05, 2011 -- The International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine’s (IAPAM) Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with botox training is different than any other educational program offered in North America.  The IAPAM offers comprehensive aesthetic medicine training and long term support for physicians of all medical specialties. The IAPAM is where the world’s physicians come together to learn and share their experiences in aesthetic medicine. The IAPAM offers a suite of aesthetic medicine training programs from botox training to hCG training, along with aesthetic practice business training.  Unlike programs offered by a private company, the Aesthetic Medicine Symposium is certified by the IAPAM, a voluntary professional association of physicians and supporters, which sets standards for the aesthetic medical profession.

Attendees at the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium ( receive significant value for money. The Symposium provides physicians with:

- dedicated instruction from board-certified dermatologists, who are true experts of the skin and cosmetic injectables.
- hands-on practice in the best injection techniques.
- delivery of the botox training at a medical practice, not in a hotel room.
- an environment that does not allow exhibitors, giving doctors more time for education.

Young Entrepreneur Launches New Interactive Celebrity Gossip Website

New York, NY – January 5, 2011 -- Bill “sniper” Williams a Web entrepreneur forced to leave his previous job because of cutbacks and outsourcing has decided to start “another” Celebrity gossip Website, The website will feature lead stories from the arrest of teachers from around the country.

The “celebrities” on are the teachers arrested for various offenses. The public needs to know where sexual predators and offenders are teaching. The site is designed for all types of schools from colleges, technical schools, universities, and more.

The public is also welcome to submit stories, opinions and facts. has a very liberal removal policy. If someone asks that an entry about them is removed, we will consider it if there is good reason. As previously stated, if has information on an arrest, (although innocent until proven guilty) that person will appear on the website.

Students are encouraged to be “journalist” and send in fresh news content from their home town areas. New categories can always be added or created on

Students are also encouraged to report on good teachers, professors and schools. will moderate all incoming stories and comments.

Unlike the “other” social media websites, allows a user to post anonymous or their real information to post. will not post stories that are defamatory in nature, but an author's opinion or a news story will post on the website. can be viewed as a site in between and only we combine both the news article and opinions into separate categories.

HIV Reservoirs: Four main questions for 2011

Toulon, France, January 5, 2011 -- Despite effective antiretroviral combinations (HAART) capable of totally blocking the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) replication, this retrovirus persists life-long in patients due to the existence of hidden reservoirs. Major advances have been made since the first description of these HIV reservoirs in 1997 but a handful of fundamental questions remains to be elucidated before trying to find a cure.

Question 1: What is ‘the’ HIV Reservoir and Where is it Located?
The majority of the long-term HIV reservoir is situated in CD4+ T lymphocytes. These cells keep the memory of the immune system and are long-lived. We also know that within these CD4+ lymphocytes, the HIV reservoir is located in the central memory and transitional memory sub-populations. The HIV reservoir is 10 fold higher in the gut than in the blood and, in the brain, infected astrocytes could be the principal cells responsible for HIV persistence.
On the contrary, data on other HIV reservoir cells are scarce (Stem cells? Macrophages? Other sorts of cells?) as well as on different body compartments than the gut and the brain.

Question 2: What other factors than the virus play a role in the HIV Reservoir?
There are at least some recognized genetic factors and immune factors. For example, ‘elite controllers’ (patients controlling HIV replication themselves without the need of HAART) have a better CD8 antiviral response, leading to a kind of protection of the central memory CD4+ T cells, and this is associated with the presence of HLA B27 and B57 markers.
However, the exact nature of the immune response that could be able to control a very tiny HIV reservoir remains uncertain.

Question 3: What current HAART can do on the HIV reservoir?
The HIV reservoir is established very early, at the time of acute HIV infection. Treating HIV with HAART at the chronic stage of the disease is unable to decrease the HIV reservoir. However, it is highly likely that initiating HAART very early, at acute infection, limits the HIV reservoir size and the damages done to the immune system. Nevertheless, the clinical benefits of this early approach still need to be proven. It is also unknown if there is a threshold below which we can drive the HIV reservoir size and this one will not rekindle when HAART is discontinued. Finally, almost nothing is known on antiretroviral drugs activity in cells from different tissues.

Question 4: Can  the HIV Reservoir be targeted and how?
The most advanced theory is the HIV reservoir ‘purge’, i.e. activating latently infected cells in the presence of HAART to make them die or killed by the immune system. The main candidates are Histone Deacetylase Inhibitors (HDACi) and Interleukin-7 (IL-7). There are concerns that IL-7 would not be strong enough to reactivate the HIV reservoir, or even help expand it, and that HDACi could put the brain HIV reservoir beyond control. Preliminary results of small pilot studies testing these new strategies are urgently needed.

About us:
Since the year 2003 we are committed in HIV reservoirs research and organize every 2-year the reference scientific workshop on HIV reservoirs. The next edition in December 2011 will address all these issues and much more (
