A Hoax?
Sep 10, 2007

This press release ( seems to be popping up on the internet (if you search Yahoo News for "HIV AND vaccine" it shows up) as of last night (September 9). I looked for more inforamtion on "NIAID #11039" and found nothing on or by searching the web. The patent the release references does exist, however. Frankly, this looks like a hoax to me. Is it? Rick

Response from Dr. Pierone

yes it is a hoax

Post-Pep rash?
