HIV Vaccine Trials Set For 2012
A vaccine that may prevent HIV has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to begin clinical trials in humans, according to Canadian researchers.
The vaccine was developed by scientist at University of Western Ontario. The researchers report that in preliminary trials the vaccine stimulated a strong immune response and appears to have no adverse effects.
It is still too early to tell but if the trials are successful use of the vaccine will go a long way in saving the lives of millions of people.
We usually don’t get too excited when such news first comes out.In some drug trials other researchers have decided to fudge results to make their study look successful so instead of saving lives some drugs have actually killed people resulting in the abandonment of such studies.
These particular trials will begin in January 2012. We will wait to see what the final outcome of the research will be.
