HIV/AIDS vaccine reaches milestone

Anonymous Coward writes | about 5 years ago

Medicine 1

An anonymous reader writes "An HIV/AIDS vaccine developed in Ontario has applied for Phase 1 human trials. Safety and immunogenicity studies of the vaccine, dubbed SAV001-H, have already been completed on animals. Phase 1 human trials will check the safety of the vaccine on HIV positive volunteers. Phase 2 will then test immunogenicity."

for Canadian health care, following in the tradition of Insulin. And I'll bet if you are in an "at risk" group, the vaccine will be free up here as well.
