After getting three under-the-skin injections of the tailor-made vaccine, the amount of HIV in the patients’ blood (called the viral load) dropped by 80%. After a year, eight of the 18 patients still had a 90% drop in HIV levels. All patients’ T-cell counts stopped dropping.
Why hasn’t this received more press? Does anyone who knows more about this than me care to comment? Is this just another small step, or should I start making my Cure Day party plans?
