Patent applied for.

Vaccine is designed to be a single dose and last a lifetime...

also..The new vaccine is directed to what are known as the mucosal layers of the epithelium in the genital and rectal areas where the virus enters the body.

It's a bit early to say how promising this lead is. They haven't shown any data about the efficiency of the vaccine yet.

What's great is that this vaccine follows a completely new approach.
However, it would not work for cases where the epithelia is ruptured. For example by injection with a needle. Also, I would assume that it would not always prevent HIV transmission during anal sex where minor bleedings are not uncommon and therefore there is direct access for the virus to the blood stream.

Anyway, if it works it could be combined with an antibody-based vaccine to increase the overall efficiency.

Yes, I thought they would provide a little more on the background of the research to date that led to the patent application -- although that may be the difference between a research organization with public funding and a private company trying to hype investors.  At any rate, they are likely a year or two away from starting any kind of clinical trial, and then five years (at least) from commercialization (IF all goes well).

What's great is that this vaccine follows a completely new approach. ...

Agreed - the fact that there is a new approach, and the opportunity to leverage, learn from, and otherwise build on this approach (while recognizing the long time frames) is encouraging.
