|Vaccine with medications
Sep 13, 2001
I resently read that you might be able to use a vaccine soon to treat HIV? The thought being that a person could take medication for a year to drive down the virus to undectable leves(<50) After one year they would recieve the vaccine and the vaccine could keep the virus in check in thier system without taking medications? Is this true? When do you think this could be available?

Therapeutic vaccines are in research and it is likely to be at least several more years before anything is available for clinical use.
