One step closer to a vaccine for AIDs
Some scientist are taking a new approach to finding a vaccine of AIDs. In this article, scientists have started a new study where they are injecting mice with a protective gene against HIV. The problem scientists are having right now is trying to make the human body make antibodies for HIV. Their new approach is to inject a vaccine that does not try to train the body to make antibodies, but by inserting the proteins for it. This vaccine is still a new study, but scientists are finding it a good concept where it could lead them in the right direction.
I think that this new study is a great idea. Even though it is still in process and not yet been tested in humans, but i think it is a big step in finding a vaccine for HIV. This could also lead to finding a cure for AIDS, which would be very benefial to many people in the future.
