Developed a prototype of a powerful vaccine against HIV

A team of Spanish scientists have developed a prototype vaccine against HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. A new prototype is much more powerful than all up to this point developed. After the excellent results of test experiments on mice and monkeys, the researchers conducted tests on a group of volunteers. At the first stage vaccine was conducted on 30 healthy people. Six of them received placebo, and 24 - vaccine. Receive the vaccine experienced mild side effects - headache, pain in the injection or General fatigue, so scientists can talk about General safety of vaccines for further clinical development.

95% received the vaccine patients developed the ability to resist the virus, and 85 percent resistance to the virus lasted at least a year after the injection.

This time the researchers plan to conduct new clinical trials with volunteers infected with HIV, to determine whether the vaccine used for the prevention of AIDS.
