Vaccines are the best weapons to protect the individuals against infection or disease by stimulating the bodyâs immune system. Unfortunately, vaccines against HIV are in various stages of clinical trial, but none of the trails were successful to provide protection against HIV. Researchers do not have clear initiative as the virus has unique ways of evading the immune system, and the human body seems to be incapable of mounting an effective immune response against it. NIAID, UNAIDS and WHO support many biomedical research works to develop an effective, safe and durable vaccine against the HIV by enhancing the effectiveness of existing prevention strategies to control the HIV/AIDS.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
