    Large-Scale HIV Vaccine Trial Shows Some Success

    For the first time, an HIV vaccine trial has produced positive results: A new vaccine tested on more than 16,000 volunteers in Thailand reduces the risk of HIV infection by more than 30 percent, The New York Times reports. The clinical trial—the largest HIV vaccine trial in history—was backed by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the Thai Ministry of Public Health, the United States Army and patent-holders to the two parts of the vaccine, Sanofi-Pasteur and Global Solutions for Infectious Diseases.

    pharmaceutical companies have a cure but if they announce that there is a cure then they will loose money....so every now and then they put out a little news about a possible HIV vaccine to get people hopes up.

    There was an RJ featured article on this topic a few days ago.

    tereseus1, unfortunately, you are probably right. That's why I am calling on our community to find a grassroots way to fund vaccine research.

    HIV is persistently spreading at epidemic rates throughout the world emphasizing the need for a vaccine that can substantially reduce viral loads and minimize transmission.
    DNA-based vaccines have become more preferable in controlling infectious diseases due to their safety and ability to induce both humoral and T-cell immune responses.

    That sound great. I think condoms will work for now. I don't see any big agency bouncing on it right now. Not if it doesn't make a ton of money for GS.
