jan 29 vaccine trials
« on: January 28, 2008, 06:43:44 PM »
 
Summary South African scientists have completed their laboratory research on a potential HIV vaccine, and the country's first human trials involving up to 20 people are expected to begin in the third quarter of the year. This, is according to Zo Mbelle, project manager for the South African HIV Vaccine Action Campaign at the Medical Research Council (MRC).
Describing the process as "very, very, exciting", Mbelle said the human trial of the Venezuelan encephalitis virus vaccine would be conducted at RK Khan Hospital, a private hospital in Durban.
Kenya launched Africa's first human trial of an HIV vaccine this week. However, the Kenyan candidate vaccine is based on HIV sub-type A, the most common form of the disease in East Africa, while HIV sub-type C is most prevalent in southern Africa.
Michelle Galloway, MRC spokesperson on the South African vaccine initiative, confirmed that Alphavax, a US-based biotechnology company, which has been working on a similar vaccine for sub-type B in the US, will be making the substance which will be tested in the human trial here. Mbelle said: "There are about 10 candidate vaccines being researched and developed in the country. Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital has also applied to be a test site and is waiting for funding. It has not yet identified which candidate vaccine it wants to test."
All HIV vaccine work in the country is co-ordinated by the South African Aids Vaccine Initiative. The Medicines Control Council is involved in the licensing and registration of the product.

Seriously, PP --

Please be kind enough to check the dates of the "new" information you're posting. And I'd also like for you to check out the Research News Forum rules and regulations, notably this part:

A few important ground rules:

  • Please do not copy and paste entire articles or documents, either from AIDSmeds.com or other Web sources, for posting in your message. Some of these documents are incredibly long and do not format correctly when republished.

  • When providing hyperlinks to articles or documents, either on AIDSmeds.com or elsewhere, please provide the complete URL; the name of document, organization, or publication you're directing people to; and a brief description of why you think it might be of interest to readers.

  • Feel free to copy and paste short articles or excerpts from longer articles in your messages.  However, as a matter of Internet and publishing courtesy, please provide a basic reference for the information (at least the name of the source and the full URL to the document).

PP,

The problem is you post OUTDATED crap. The cut and paste botch-jobs we could conceivably live with.

By the way, did you ever get confirmation of your hiv status? If you haven't, you shouldn't be posting anywhere other than the Am I Infected forum, as you have been previously told.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
