Posted on 04/26/2013 6:35:39 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
The latest bad news in the hunt for an AIDS vaccine: The government halted a large U.S. study on Thursday, saying the experimental shots aren't preventing HIV infection.
Nor did the shots reduce the amount of the AIDS virus in the blood when people who'd been vaccinated later became infected, the National Institutes of Health said.
"It's disappointing," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of NIH's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. But, "there was important information gained from this" study that will help determine what to try next.

Where’s that Gomer Pyle pic....
Guess we can still say “shouldn’t put your wanger there”.
Chicken pox, small pox, influenza........
“Someone correct me if I am wrong, but has there EVER been a vaccine for a VIRUS? I seem to remember learning that the volatility of viral makeup prevents vaccinations from being effective.”
I’m not an expert in this field, but isn’t the annual flu vaccine for the flu virus? I don’t know how quickly HIV mutates, so I don’t know the practicality of a vaccination. Not a big issue to me, I’m old, married, and I’d put my risk at near zero.
The FLU vaccine, that doctors recommend every year?
How about a modern version of the chastity belt?.........
This whole fiasco sounds like an exorbitant research cost (largely footed by taxpayers) for a disease that is wholly avoidable, and the money would be better spent on researching the sexual life of the pill bug.
Although there are innocent victims of this disease and I feel sorry for them, most infected people bring it on themselves.
My guess is that it’s nature’s way of culling the herd...
Many for viruses but none to my knowledge for a RETROVIRUS.
Occam has the answer: AIDS isn’t caused by a virus - it is a immune system destroying lifestyle disease and, as a result, there will never be a vaccine to cure it.
It is still and will always be a disease primarily limited to the gay and (pardon the redundancy) drug using populations.
There are many HIV/AIDS ‘dissidents’ who question the entire AIDS orthodoxy...
*Many question if HIV exists at all. (HIV tests only test for antibodies. They are unable to test for HIV itself).
*Some believe HIV probably exists but that it doesn’t cause AIDS.
*Some believe HIV is a harmless retrovirus and that the highly toxic aids drugs, along with other co-factors, such as overuse of antibiotics, recreational drug use, other illnesses,etc are what cause people to die of so called ‘AIDS’.
God sends plagues against those who defy nature’s law. It will not be cured until he allows it to be.
Not to say that the homosexual deathstyle doesn't entail a multitude of other deadly heath hazards which definitely encourage the furtherance of the disease.
There is only one way to avoid HIV. Sit on your @$$ and keep your mouth shut.
Furthermore, there are many who claim HIV/AIDS drugs are not needed AT ALL in order to live a long, healthy life - that in fact, those toxic drugs are very counterproductive.
Many have lived 10, 15, 20 years or more without ever having taking the AIDS drugs. Changing lifestyle habits - what you eat, wreckless sex, etc., is what matters most. The so-called AIDS ‘experts’ claim HIV can take 10 years before someone shows symptoms. Yet, has there been any other virus out there for which they make such a claim?
