question about HIV vaccine
Sep 7, 2000
Hi doctor, I heard that in UK, a trial is going on using HIV vaccine, is this vaccine for protection against HIV, or it also can be used as a treatment to increase the T cell killer cells? thank u
Response from Dr. Squires
Unfortunately, I am not sure which trial you are referring to. There are a number of preventive (protection against contracting HIV) and therapeutic (boost the infected person's immune response) being conducted in North America, Europe as well as several countries in the "developing" world.
Hope that this has been helpful.
