HIV/AIDS Vaccines

An AIDS vaccine does not yet exist, but efforts to build up an antibody or vaccine against HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, have been in a progress for many years. An HIV vaccine could be effective in both of two different ways. A “preventive” vaccine would stop HIV contamination occurring altogether, whereas a “therapeutic” vaccine would not stop contamination, but would delay or prevent illness in people who do become contaminated, and might also decrease the dangerous factor of them transmitting the virus to other individuals. In spite of the fact that a preventive vaccine would be ideal, a therapeutic vaccine also can be highly beneficial. The fundamental thought behind all HIV vaccines is to encourage the human immune system to fight against HIV.

Historically, vaccines have been our best weapon against the world’s deadliest contagious diseases, including polio, small pox, yellow fever and measles. Unfortunately, currently we do not have a vaccine for HIV. The virus has unique ways of avoiding the immune system, and the human body seems incapable of mounting an effective immune response against it. As a result, researchers do not have a reasonable picture of what is needed to provide protection against HIV.
