Dr.Robert Gallo's take on a preventative vaccine
« on: August 27, 2010, 09:20:06 AM »

Although this paper dates to around 2005, it explains the complexity involved in a preventative vaccine.
Dr. Gallo is working on a therapeutic vaccine:

George,

Not unusual. CHAVI,NIH,IAVI and many others have been working on vaccines with no clinical trials yet. Some more than 5 years.

Gallo's probably waiting again for the French to come up with a breakthrough, then copy it and claim it as his own work.  ;D

LOL....good one, because it's probably true ;D...Frankly I think Gallo is overrated. Luckily there are many truly talented people out there working their asses off on defeating HIV. It will happen.

Well, at least we know that if a cure is found, it won't get swept under the carpet as long as he is around to try to steal the spotlight and take credit!  ;)

Cerrid,

What happened back in the early 80's was abominable. Especially, the squabble over who should take credit with respect to finding the virus. The French did in fact determine that the aids virus was a retro-virus (a new one). Gallo was the first to find HTLV and pioneered the first HIV blood test.

The gay community was not without sin in those early days. At that time, the community was very sensitive about criticism of their lifestyle (justifiably so) and refused to admit their actions could make a difference in the spread of aids (condoms etc.).

I'm sure you have seen the movie " And the Band Played On". An emotional commentary of those early years. Anyone who hasn't seen that movie --- should!

I don't care who comes up with a cure, as long as it happens !

I live AIDS on a daily basis, not interested to see a movie about it.  I actually was watching "Reality Bites" the other day because I hadn't seen it when it was new and in the middle of my movie they start talking about HIV.  I guess I should've known any movie worth it's salt in the early or mid 90s was talking about HIV/AIDS.

Edit: Oh and the "Don't shut down our right to bath houses" movement was well intentioned but ultimately a bad idea.

HR,

What makes that movie unique is the way they approach the epidemic from a research point of view. Although the horrors of the early epidemic are implied, the focus relates to the behind the scenes panic that occured within the research community and the in-fighting that put up road blocks at every turn due to egos. Let's hope that these barriers are being knocked down for the common good, especially since the talk of a cure is in the foreground. There are many watching closely the developments and it's a good thing they are watching! "Those who ignore history, are doomed to repeat it."

Since this thread deals with an HIV vaccine, I thought this would be a good place to share this video of an interview ABC News did on a vaccine.  For most here, the interview won't tell you anything you didn't already know.  I'm just always glad to see major news outlets discussing HIV.  ABC seems to give HIV more coverage than other networks.
