Promising findings lead to initiation of a clinical efficacy trial in southern Africa
BOSTON - More than three decades after the identification of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), scientists are still working to develop a preventative vaccine that could finally put an end to the epidemic for which there are nearly two million new infections each year.
