Response from Dr. Young
Hi and thanks for posting.
Development of vaccine or immune-based therapies for HIV prevention and treatment remains one of the holy grails of drug discovery. This is among several important steps in the process, and I'm hopeful that collectively they will lead to advances in treatment.
Timelines for drug discovery from this very basic step to clinically proven, safe and effective treatments can often take many years, often from 5-10 years.
Be well, and stay tuned. BY
