Bloomberg Examines HIV/AIDS Vaccine Research
Bloomberg on Friday examined the current state of HIV vaccine research.The article also profiles Dennis Burton, professor of immunology at the Scripps Research Institute, and his research to develop an HIV vaccine. According to Bloomberg, Burton's models "represent the proteins he says can stop strains of the virus from infecting cells, sparking optimism for a vaccine that would wipe out one of the planet's most baffling and drug-resistant infections." Bloomberg reports that "scientists say it may be at least 10 more years before" a "promising vaccine candidate emerges from testing" (Lauerman, Bloomberg, 6/20).
