AIDS Vaccine Test in South Africa

Preparations get underway for a trial testing new beefed-up versions of AIDS vaccines among heterosexuals

Preparations are underway for a trial testing new beefed-up versions of AIDS vaccines among heterosexuals in South Africa and men who have sex with men in Thailand.

The trial will use a Sanofi vaccine, but instead of AIDSVAX, researchers will use a different vaccine candidate with a boosting agent from Novartis.

A 2009 clinical trial in Thailand was the first to show it was possible to prevent HIV infection in humans and since then, discoveries have pointed to even more powerful vaccines using HIV-fighting antibodies.
