    Most Powerful HIV Vaccine Being Tested In Spain

    Ninety-five percent of the patients who received the vaccine developed bodily defenses - although the normal rate for prior HIV vaccines has been 25 percent - and also, whereas other vaccines stimulate the production of cells or antibodies, this prototype "managed to stimulate both," Felipe Garcia emphasized.

    In 85 percent of the patients, the defenses generated were maintained for at least a year, "which in this field is enough time," he added.

    This is great news. Though I don't know how it will affect the strain of the disease found in Africa it's definitely a step in the right direction. It's no cure and still has some testing, but I am optimistic about this!

    Interesting indeed! CSIC is Spain's governement council on research if memory serves? Nice to see some tax dollars paying off. Hope it works for all those suffering from HIV.

    Hopefully this will lead to other big improvements in helping deal/manage the HIV.
