Could cows be the clue that leads to an HIV vaccine?
Conclusion This early stage research on cows indicates that they had a broad and quick immune response to HIV infection when given a specific vaccine. Because the immune proteins produced in cows are able to neutralise many different strains of HIV virus, the authors suggest this potentially gives them an edge over the human proteins that have been looked at so far. As always with animal studies it is important to remember that what works in cows might not work in the same way in humans. Many drug studies that appear promising at first, fall at the first hurdle once humans are involved. The study was also carried out on ju...

More than 50 medicines and vaccines in development for HIV infection, Treatment and Prevention
From the introduction of anti-retroviral therapy (ART) in the mid-1990 ’s, to the discovery of medicines that prevent the transmission of HIV, America’s biopharmaceutical companies are leading the fight against HIV/AIDS. In recent years, combination therapies have further transformed the lives of patients with HIV/AIDS so that today they can take a single pill containing multiple medicines. This once-a-day model increases adherence and is a sea change from the old model of multiple medicines taken multiple times in a day. (Source: The Catalyst)

Insane Texas Bill That Attacks Abortion From All Sides Just Became Law
On Tuesday, Texas Gov.

(Rewire called it an “anti-choice blitz.”) But the newly passed Senate Bill 8 stands out from the rest for the startling breadth with which it attacks abortion rights.

Thirty-six years ago today, if someone had told me that we would be on threshold of controlling the HIV/AIDS pandemic without a vaccine or a cure, I would not have believed it.

The World Is Not Ready for the Next Pandemic
Across China, the virus that could spark the next pandemic is already circulating. It’s a bird flu called H7N9, and true to its name, it mostly infects poultry. Lately, however, it’s started jumping from chickens to humans more readily–bad news, because the virus is a killer. During a recent spike, 88% of people infected got pneumonia, three-quarters ended up in intensive care with severe respiratory problems, and 41% died. What H7N9 can’t do–yet–is spread easily from person to person, but experts know that could change. The longer the virus spends in humans, the better the chance that i...
