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.
