HIV/AIDS Vaccines

Development of a HIV/AIDS immunization has been ease back on the grounds that established ways to deal with antibody improvement have not yielded an antibody. An AIDS vaccine does not yet exist, but efforts to develop a vaccine against HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, have been underway for many years. An HIV vaccine could be effective in either of two ways. A preventive vaccine would stop HIV infection occurring altogether, whereas a therapeutic vaccine would not stop infection, but would prevent or delay illness in people who do become infected, and might also reduce the risk of them transmitting the virus to other people. Although a preventive vaccine would be ideal, therapeutic vaccines would also be highly beneficial. The basic idea behind all HIV vaccines is to encourage the human immune system to fight HIV.
