Default HIV vaccine aces first human trials

HIV vaccine aces first human trials

First human tests have been declared as a success with patients' antibodies being boosted after treatment.

An HIV prevention vaccine has aced its first clinical trials.

A team of Canadian researchers, from the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry at Western University, have said their first tests have been a complete success.

Not only has the vaccine worked, it has boosted the production of antibodies in patients it was tested on.

SAV001, one of only a handful of HIV vaccines in the world, is based on a genetically-modified ‘dead’ version of the virus.

This seems newsworthy! This is the first 'promising' word I've heard on this topic in over twenty years.

Fantastic. I know a group here in Cleveland at one of the medical schools has also been working on vaccine studies.
