Promising vaccine beats virus that causes AIDS in monkeys
Research recently published in the journal Nature reported a major breakthrough in HIV. The Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) claims they have created a vaccine that completely eradicates the virus that causes AIDS in some monkeys.
Half of the monkeys infected with SIV or simian immunodeficiency virus were free of virus after three years following the vaccine. SIV is very similar to HIV but 100 times stronger.
