Scientists one step closer to HIV vaccine

Vyralize: Scientists have made a break through discovery by figuring out how the body’s immune system makes a powerful antibody that blocks HIV infection of cells by targeting a site on the virus called V1V2. They believe that if a relevant vaccine could elicit potent antibodies to a target a specific site of the V1V2 region that remains stable throughout the virus’s mutation, then the vaccine could protect people from getting HIV.

Herpes next

Considering that Herpes is nothing but inconvenient for those that have it, I doubt it's a priority when compared with diseases like HIV, Hepatitis and Syphilis.

I've never really understood the fear people have for the disease, considering it's practically harmless. I suppose like Diamond Rings, marketing is the main reason for people's misguided beliefs.

Well, the efficiency of these studies is only ~60% for the first year(and near nothing shortly after), so there certainly are mutations, but this is a marked improvement.
