"This study demonstrates that the mosaic Ad26 prime, Ad26 plus gp140 boost HIV vaccine candidate induced robust immune responses in humans and monkeys with comparable magnitude, kinetics, phenotype, and durability and also provided 67% protection against viral challenge in monkeys", says Professor Dan Barouch, Director of the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, who led the study, said in a press release. The age of participants was of 18-50; all were healthy, and none of them had HIV.
Despite the fact that treatment of HIV with each passing year it becomes more effective still vaccine against this virus and the therapy was only in the dreams of doctors and patients. The researchers found that every person who received the vaccine produced some kind of anti-HIV immune response, with almost 80 percent producing more advanced responses.
The result of the study, published in The Lancet on July 6, showed that "mosaic" vaccine was able to trigger anti-HIV immune responses in healthy individuals. At present around 37 million individuals are living with HIV/AIDS with 1.8 million new infections and 1 million deaths annually says the World Health Organization. A safe and effective preventative vaccine is urgently needed to curb the HIV pandemic, the researchers said. However, creating a vaccine has proven very hard for scientists "because there are so many strains of the virus" and " because HIV is adept at mutating to elude attack from our immune systems".
While the results so far have been encouraging, the research team and outside experts warn there are no guarantees it will actually work in the next trial phase dubbed HVTN705 or "Imbokodo" - this is Zulu word for "rock".
"We have to acknowledge that developing an HIVvaccine is an unprecedented challenge, and we will not know for sure whether this vaccine will protect humans", he said. But despite advances in treatment for HIV, both a cure and a vaccine for the virus have so far remained elusive.
HIV, as we know is very unsafe and nearly incurable disease and researchers are behind to find the cure of this disease for a long time. We thank the International AIDSVaccine Initiative (IAVI) and the generous support of USAID and other donors; a full list of IAVI donors is available online.
"I can not emphasise how badly we need to have a vaccine.to get rid of HIV in the next generation altogether", said Francois Venter of the University of the Witwatersrand Reproductive Health and HIV Institute in South Africa.
These types of trials are created to test out whether an intervention is safe and works at the most basic level. We can not say anything on a note as the majority of studies which are done on the animals prove to be wrong when seen in humans. It's unclear whether it would provide protection in humans. "But the data is promising and we are happy to report the immune response".

"This is only the fifth HIVvaccine concept that will be tested for efficacy in humans in the 35+ year history of the global HIV epidemic", Barouch added.
