This week in HIV/AIDS, July 6, 2015

A recent study in monkeys is being touted as great news and a real break through when it comes to finding a vaccine to protect people from being infected with HIV. The quote here is from a report on latinoshealth.com: … the research team has incorporated the vaccine in monkeys by means of adenovirus 26, a common cold virus, to help develop antibodies.
