An amazing story. A potential HIV vaccine from Canada!!!
Researchers at the University of Western Ontario have been given a green light to test a vaccine for HIV AIDS on humans.
The approval from the Food and Drug Administration will lead to further tests, that if successful could see a vaccine on the market in about five years.
Dr. Chil-Yong Kang and a team at the university funded by Sumagen Canada said approval by the American agency was crucial and a clinical trial on 40 HIV-positive volunteers will begin next month.
That phase will last a year after which 600 -negative volunteers will see how the vaccine impacts their immune system.
A final phase, taking about three years will involve about 6,000 HIV-negative volunteers.
