  • Vaccine for HIV on the Horizon?

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,554783,00.html

    First step in the process that will ultimately lead to a true vaccine preventing HIV. Damn...

      If it turns out well, this is the biggest landmark in medical science in years. A vaccine for HIV opens up the possibility for vaccines for all the other dangerous virii in the world.

        I'd rather just wrap my willie than to inject myself with a bunch of random **** they're probably just testing on me.

        If there was a cure, then i'd be impressed. There has always been a way to prevent HIV. It's called abstinence and not being a moron.

          I didn't at first either, but this says it "only" reduces the risk by 31% IIRC. Certainly not perfect, but it could be a significant step...

            The vaccine — a combination of two previously unsuccessful vaccines — cut the risk of becoming infected with HIV by more than 31 percent in the world's largest AIDS vaccine trial of more than 16,000 volunteers in Thailand, researchers announced Thursday in Bangkok.
            Not a cure, just a blocking agent. Money makes some weird **** happen. It's for that very reason that I think a cure, where as it may be found, may never be brought to light.

              HAHAHA, yeah, def agree there, but I figured it would be something people would be interested in, spark up some debate...

                      okay don't share dirty needles, razor blades, dirty toilet seats that have blood stains on them.

                      Don't have blood transfusions without checking the blood first.

                      I'm pretty sure if your not a moron you can avoid this stuff.

                        But yeah, this is a groundbreaking medical advance

                              Yeah, thanks. That's what i meant by not being a moron. If you're sharing needles, you're probably better off not polluting this world some more.
