Urgently require your answer - JB
Oct 16, 2000

Can you please tell me what you know about Canary Pox as my girlfriend must make a decision about going on this trial. It is a kind of vaccine which I understand has been tried in the States. Your earliest answer will be appreciated as she must reply by monday. Many thanks

Response from Dr. Bartlett

Canary pox viruses are being evaluated in the development of HIV vaccines. They can be used to carry HIV genes which make individual HIV proteins to stimulate an immune response. Canary pox viruses do not cause disease in humans, and are therefore currently considered to be very safe.
