The experimental HIV-1 vaccine is one of five that have progressed to tests of effectiveness in humans.
Only one so far, RV144, yielded some protection. The drug showed it could boost the immuneresponses against HIV. Known as APPROACH, the phase 1/2a trial tested seven different Ad26/Env HIV vaccine regimens for their safety, tolerability and the ability to elicit immuneresponses in 393 healthy adult volunteers in Rwanda, South Africa, Thailand, Uganda and the United States. They were administered 4 injections over a period of 48 weeks and their immune system response was noted.
One of the biggest challenges is the fact that many vaccine candidates that seem to work in the lab or in animal trials often don't work in human trials, which means a lot of time and money can be spent developing something that doesn't actually work. A vaccine would not only be more manageable, but also more effective.
Until now, all the positive results show that researchers can continue testing it. Only five of the recipients of the vaccine reported side effects such as dizziness, diarrhoea, stomach pain, low back pain etc.
There has been a four decades long challenge to develop a vaccine against the deadly HIV virus that causes AIDS.
We can not say anything on a note as the majority of studies which are done on the animals prove to be wrong when seen in humans.
Jean-Daniel Lelievre of France's Vaccine Research Institute said the vaccine was likely not the "definitive" version, but may represent "a phenomenal advance".
With an estimated 1.8 million new cases of HIVevery year, a safe and effective vaccine would be an incredible tool in stopping the pandemic. Death toll is estimated now at a million deaths per year.
Nearly 80 million people are estimated to have been infected since the virus was first diagnosed in the early 1980s.
About 35 million have died. However, creating a vaccine has proven very hard for scientists "because there are so many strains of the virus" and " because HIV is adept at mutating to elude attack from our immune systems".
A new study has given the researchers a ray of light in the battle to safeguard people from the most widespread virus, HIV-1.
Dr Brady added that in the meantime there were already tools that were effective for preventing the disease from spreading, such as contraception and treatments for HIV-positive people that prevent them from passing on the virus.
Earlier, Environment Canada forecasted that the temperature will be 35 Degree Celsius but it will feel like 45 Degree Celsius. A total of 33 people have died in Montreal since the beginning of the heat wave, according to public health officials.
