Here is the link to the full story on the press release:

http://tinyurl.com/bvmu7dr

The short story is that "the initial results showed a significant increase in antibody production in participants, without causing any unusual responses to the volunteersí immune system."  and they are moving into phase 2 trials with 600 HIV negative, high risk, participants.

Another small, but important, step in the overall process.....
