San Jose Mercury News Examines Changes in Vaccine Development
The San Jose Mercury News yesterday examined how AIDS vaccine research has shifted its focus from finding a completely effective vaccine that blocks HIV to developing a partially effective vaccine that could offer protection to some populations or slow disease progression in people already infected with HIV. The full article is available online (Krieger, San Jose Mercury News, 7/16). An side bar that accompanies the article and explains the differences between the different immune responses that vaccine candidates hope to elicit is also available online (Krieger, San Jose Mercury News, 7/16).This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
