AIDS Vaccine and already infected

May 22, 2001

Hi, i've been reading the news about all these new trials about HIV vaccines. They are very interesting and I am glad that scientists have come this far. One question I have is do these vaccines only work for those who are not infected? I mean will they have any effect on those of us whom are already infected. thanx

Response from Dr. Young

HIV vaccines remain the subject of intense clinical research. The benefit of vaccines as therapeutics for those with established HIV infection remains unclear; though research in this field continues.

Continuing treatment with certain rebound of viral load?
Best next step...
