Clinical trials of HIV vaccine that should protect people from different strains showed promising results.

This is reported by the BBC.

An article analyzing the results of the study, published in the scientific journal Lancet. It states that the vaccine caused the correct response of the immune system of all 393 test participants. She also helped protect monkeys from a virus similar to HIV.

Now it is necessary to carry out further tests and to find out if it can protect a person from HIV. In the world, about 37 million people live with HIV or AIDS. Each year there are about 1.8 million new cases.

The study was conducted in 2015-2016, and in July 2017, scientists told the world about its results.

The vaccine against HIV has become a real challenge for scientists, since this virus has many strains. The virus can mutate in order to avoid attacking the human immune system, so we can not develop immunity to it.

The new, so-called mosaic vaccine consists of proteins of different strains of this virus, therefore ideally it should become universal protection.

The study was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled test, which is considered the standard method in medicine. Scientists have tested various vaccine options for healthy participants from 18 to 50 years of age who are not infected with HIV.
