News Outlets Focus on Participants in AIDS Vaccine Study, Potential Impact of AIDS Vaccine

September 28, 2009

The Associated Press examines the role of the Thai participants in the recent clinical trial of an experimental HIV vaccine which showed modest potential for preventing infection. "Nearly 16,000 Thais ignored the false rumors that they were being infected by the AIDS virus, and overcame their fears of becoming social outcasts to participate in trials of the first vaccine found to prevent infection with the deadly virus," the news service writes (Ahuja/Casey, 9/27). The New York Times examines what an effective AIDS vaccine could mean for the world (McNeil, 9/26).
