Monkey vaccine offers hope for HIV patients

Finding could lead to testing of similar vaccine in humans and transform treatment of virus that causes AIDS.

    New research suggests a vaccine for the monkey equivalent of HIV has effectively eradicated the virus in more than half of those infected.

    The finding could lead to testing of a similar vaccine in humans. And if it is found to be effective, it would transform the treatment of millions of people with HIV.
