First Phase of AIDS Vaccine Trial Successful

“Xinhua online is reporting on the success of the first trial phase of an AIDS vaccine, which was started on March 2005. From the article: ‘”Forty-nine healthy people who received the injection showed no severe adverse reactions after 180 days, proving the vaccine was safe,” said Zhang Wei, head of the pharmaceutical registration department of the SFDA. “The recipients appeared immune to the HIV-1 virus 15 days after the injection, indicating the vaccine worked well in stimulating the body’s immunity,” he told the press conference.’ After the results are further analyzed, 800 more voluntaries may be needed for the second and third phases of the vaccine’s trial.”
