AIDS Vaccine is Working?

via /.

Xinhua is reporting successful first trials of a vaccine for AIDS. Not only does it appear that it is safe, but it also appears to keep the vaccinated patients AIDS free.

I really hope this is for real, but it’s taken so long to research and develope a vaccine for AIDS because it mutates readily, so I wonder if this vaccine will work on the various mutations of the AIDS virus. It’s not so good for the people who already have AIDS, but maybe this is a step in the right direction toward a cure for AIDS.

That’s something I would really like to see.
