Response from Dr. Pierone

There was a new report in July about positive results of this phase 1 study. I don't know where the data was presented though. Do you have the citation or meeting? What will be important is what percentage of the HIV infected subjects had reduction in viral load in response to the vaccine. Regardless, it is always a positive sign when an agent makes it through phase 1 studies.
