    anyone hear about the new vaccine? supposedly it works but catch is it gives you hepatits. Now while there is no guarantee you would ever catch HIV with out it would you take it and get hepatitis just to be safe? which would you rather live with?

    Personally I dont think I would take it

    It makes no sense that it would give you hepatitis. You got a link or something?

    Unless it is manufactured from the blood of people who have HIV (Who frequently also have hepatitis).

    Sort of like a while back how the hemophilia treatment was giving people hiv and hepatitis... But that was because of non-existent safety standards.

    No, it doesn't make any sense. I think the OP is talking about this, http://www.pharmaceutical-technology.com/news/news118704.html. It's a herpes virus though, not hepatitis. And it's not genital herpes, fyi.

    I ask the OP to edit his post.

    I am involved with clinical trials of several different HIV meds and vaccine.

    You are confusing HIV with HsV

    It may confuse someone and dissuade them from participation.
