CQ HealthBeat Reports on Ongoing Efforts to Develop HIV Vaccine

May 13, 2010

"Despite growing access to drugs that stop HIV/AIDS, the AIDS epidemic won't end without powerful tools to prevent the disease, say top researchers at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases" (NIAID), CQ HealthBeat reports in an article reflecting on a recent statement issued by Anthony Fauci, the director of NIAID, ahead of National HIV Vaccine Awareness Day, which is set for May 18. The article details how researchers hope to use the results of the HIV vaccine clinical trial conducted in Thailand to inform future studies as well as other ongoing studies. "One of the purposes of National HIV Vaccine Awareness Day is to promote awareness of the importance of volunteers to test vaccines. Also key to the development effort are continuing partnerships with companies and non-governmental organizations, the researchers said," according to CQ HealthBeat (Reichard, 5/12).
