US researchers, who have tested the AIDS vaccine in humans, have obtained quite positive results. If the tests carried out so far in monkeys have generated hope for AIDS sufferers, the tests carried out in humans have made hope a reality.

This vaccine stimulates killer cells called T, which remove diseased cells. Vaccines made to date have been performed by simulating antibodies, but in this case live viruses have been used.

This vaccine is not new, but based on the protein of a known virus. Research is only at the beginning, so while it cannot be said to be an AIDS vaccine, it has advantages over other vaccines obtained so far. For example, the killer cells stimulated by this vaccine separate the cells contaminated by the AIDS virus from those infected by another disease.
