Billions of Dollars, Still No AIDS Vaccine

With the next attempts expected to be years away, top researchers now say there is a ‘void’ or a ‘gap’ in current clinical-trial efforts to test whether a vaccine is safe and effective, according to the HIV Vaccine Trials Network

The HIV Vaccine Trials Network says that with the next attempts expected to be years away, top researchers now say there is a ‘void’ or a ‘gap’ in current clinical-trial efforts to test whether a vaccine is safe and effective.

The organisation says an autopsy on the past four big bids to make an HIV vaccine has informed the field as to what does not work, the latest casualty being a trial of HVTN 505 that was halted early because it did not prevent HIV.

The HIV Vaccine Trials Network director, James Kublin, points out that, "It leaves us with a gap of several years before we [can expect to] have another HIV vaccine-efficacy trial under way and that is unfortunate."
