Canadian HIV vaccine ready for human tests - July 2nd 2009, 02:37 AM

Canadian HIV vaccine ready for human tests


Innovation is impossible under socialized medicine my ass.

SUCK IT HIV.

Wooo!


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I donít seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

That's awesome. I read the article, and I was wondering, though - does anyone know if it's aimed to be a preventative vaccine, or one aimed at actually treating/curing HIV infection?

No, all they're doing is making sure it isn't toxic right now. So if it spreads the virus in people that already have it, it won't make a difference. At least that's what I got out of it.

I read the article, I hope this works. Sucks that I'll probably be another decade until It's out.

It wouldn't be possible under socialized medicine. He got outside help to fund him. It wasn't the doctors in the clinics and hospitals that found the cure, it was a scientist with large amounts of outside funding.

How exciting. I hope it works out okay. I commend the brave volunteers (or under socialised medicine, who even knows if they were) who are the test subjects of the vaccine.

I'm so glad about the vaccine though. Hopefully we can prevent HIV and AIDS for people in the future and maybe even eradicate it.

Awesome! Hope it ends up working. This kind of thing sort of restores faith in humankind.

Kang has partnered with a Curacom, a South Korean holding company, that has agreed to open an office in London, Ont., to help fund research in Kang's lab and commercialize the vaccine.



A test vaccine is being manufactured in a lab in Maryland near Washington, D.C.

Plus it's not like they are doing the actual testing in Canada or the Canadian government is the major funder behind the research.

This is really exciting. Imagine how many lives could be saved if there was a vaccine for HIV.
