Vaccine to prevent AIDS may be within reach, scientists say

doctorwho_guru.†=♡ 2012/07/16 05:54:23

At an ill-fated press conference in 1984, U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Margaret Heckler boldly predicted an effective AIDS vaccine would be available within just two years.

But a string of failed attempts - punctuated by a 2007 trial in which a Merck vaccine appeared to make people more vulnerable to infection, not less - cast a shadow over AIDS vaccine research that has taken years to dispel.

    A successful vaccine would be great for women in Africa where rape is virtually a continental pastime. At least they wouldn't get infected.

    People Die from Vaccines all the time...
    Think about it, the theory is that given a small dose of the virus components, boosts amunity. Would you get an HIV vaccination?

    I wouldn't dare go near that vaccine... Will that be Round 2? Since we wouldn't even be talking about AIDS if it wasn't for the government sponsored hepititis b vaccine experiments in the late 70's using gay men as guinea pigs. Then all of a sudden in 1981 an epidemic becomes obvious and is quickly labeled a GAY related immune dificiency syndrome, Gay cancer, Gay plague, Gods gift to GAYS... and all of the above, even though men were having unprotected sex for hundreds of years without any immune dificiency syndrome. AIDS didn't come from Africa, The WHO took it there labeled as smallpox vaccines, but not before it was all man-made in a lab. Genocide at it's finest, deceit at it's finest, and now it effects everyone. Smh
  • Mimosa 2012/07/16 13:52:54
    that would be great, to wipe out AIDS would be wonderful

    how can you create a vaccine for a virus that does not exist? aids hoax
  • ~head~f... irish 2012/07/16 19:28:17
    .................. That's not true. At all. AIDS is an immunodeficiency virus that greatly weakens your immune system so you can't fight off even the common cold.
  • irish ~head~f... 2012/07/17 12:01:08
    wrong,there is no such virus.you have been brainwashed.
    Dr. Kary B. Mullis:
    (Chemistry Nobel Prize in 1993 by inventing the PCR technique): "We couldn't find any good reason for which most people on Earth believes AIDS is a disease caused by a virus called HIV. Simply there is no scientific evidence somewhere that demonstrates that this is true"
    Dr. Heinrich Kremer:
    (Chief Doctor of Clinic for young drugdependency in Berlin): “HIV is a virus which its genetic substance and proteins nobody has been able to isolate, therefore it doesn't exist. Thus it is just a - Label - that Big Pharma has wisely profited from it for an unjustified social fear.
    Dr. Charles Thomas:

    (Professor of Biochemistry at the Universities of Harvard and John Hopkins): "The HIV dogma that causes AIDS is the biggest and perhaps morally the most destructive fraud ever perpetrated in the western world".
    and robert gallo falsified his research !
    "With new findings that undermine the scientific integrity and veracity of
    Gallo's four papers, the entire basis of the theory that HIV causes AIDS
    may now be questioned," says Rethinking AIDS president David Crowe.

    You, sir, are the one who's been brainwashed, not I. And no, I didn't bother reading that, it's a ridiculous lie.
  • irish ~head~f... 2012/07/17 16:43:15
    well you sir,fall into the category of denial.
    these are top virologists and you say they are lying? why would you NOT read it? robert gallo FALSIFIED his research! there is NO AIDS VIRUS!!!!!!!!!!! why else do you think it is not spreading??? geez.
  • ~head~f... irish 2012/07/18 02:41:24
    I'm not a sir. And it is spreading. I'm now done with this conversation. You're obviously not going to open your eyes and see the truth, so.
  • irish ~head~f... 2012/07/18 11:39:34
    neither am i ,geez. see how americans shut down when facts are presented? this is why this country is doomed. the facts MATTER! denying the facts and following a lie is incomprehensible!and yet most americans are suckers for it.
    robert gallo FALSIFIED his research,get it? and EXPERTS that are virologists will tell you there is NO AIDS virus.
    now i might expect someone who was interested in this poll to actually check and see what was what. but you! you shut down totally!
    aids is dropping worldwide. aids is NOT a virus. it was man made. but of course you don't want to hear that. there are a lot of factors in this.basically aids is a conglomeration of about 30 different diseases. that does not happen in nature. and who is profiting from this?? why big pharma who continue to use scare tactics on people. you really must get informed better.
    the great aids hoax
  • ~head~f... irish 2012/07/18 21:43:03
    I am interested in this poll, considering this poll is about a VACCINE FOR AIDS. Your comments are irrelevant to me.
  • irish ~head~f... 2012/07/19 11:22:10 (edited)
    amazing! you answered and yet don't care! so you would take a vaccine for a virus that does not exist based entirely on the say so of big pharma who base their aids hysteria on falsified data?
    and the fact that top virologists say there is no such virus means nothing??
    wow! okay,get the vaccine, who knows what it will do to you. vaccines are useless anyway. and yes,the number of people getting aids has been steadily dropping. now why would that happen if its a virus??

    closed mind
