Therapeutic HIV vaccine Activism??
« on: July 03, 2007, 01:25:00 PM »
Is it possible that vaccine therapies could be accelerated to market by a more enthusiastic, robust response from the public?    Superior hiv therapies are emerging.   Among them are therapeutic hiv vaccines.   Offering low cost, no side effects, efficacious and durable treatments.   Check out GEOVAX's corporate announcement on February 6th of this year about their DNA/MVA hiv vaccine product demonstrating protection against HIV developing into AIDS.     Virionyx.   Virxsys.  Bio-Bridge(China! no more hangings, please) Mymetics. Merck!  What we may need is a bridge vaccine or vaccines to carry us through to next great advance, which could be the enzymatic eradication of the virus from the body.   But until then, a therapeutic hiv vaccine could give the HIV infected a "sustained virologic response" that could reduce or eliminate the need for Haart and also possibly reduce the incidence of new infections.
Anthony Fauci(may he live 100 years)indicated in a May 19th NPR radio interview that no recent big thing had happened in HIV vaccine development to catch the public's attention.   What?    There is plenty for HIV+ people to be excited about.   Should we be doing something more to help accelerate the marketing of a therapeutic hiv vaccine?           
Larry Kramer! (may you happily live 100 years)   Act up!(may you live 100 years)   Your efforts have surely helped save and improve millions of lives by changing the way FDA approves drugs.  Thank you, thank you.   I'm in the southeast USA.    Are there existing groups focusing on the promise of speeding therapeutic hiv vaccines to market?
In all humility, Is it likely that public excitement, demand, and enthusiasm is a vital component of bringing an hiv therapeutic vaccine to market sooner, rather than later.    A therapeutic HIV vaccine.   
May we all live 100 years, and without HIV so much.
