    Wonderful news.

    HIV vaccine shows promise in human trial

    The treatment, which aims to provide immunity against various strains of the virus, produced an anti-HIV immune system response in tests on 393 people, a study in the Lancet found.

    It also protected some monkeys from a virus that is similar to HIV.

    More testing is now needed to determine if the immune response produced can prevent HIV infection in people.

    About 37 million people worldwide live with HIV or Aids, and there are an estimated 1.8 million new cases every year.

    Big Pharma has priced HIV meds so high, the average person can't afford it. My bet is the 1% will do the same with this.

    You invest billions on the slim chance an R&D project will get approved in 15 years.

    I certainly hope so. I'd hate to think pharmaceutical companies spent Billions of dollars on research with no way of getting back that investment.

    That would be a terrible business model.
