This is exciting!
Researchers in Spain are testing an HIV vaccine that has been deemed "much more powerful" than others that have been tested in the past.
Since beginning tests on humans over a year ago, the vaccine has abled 95% of the 30 patients receiving it to build an immunity, with 85% sustaining that immunity for at least a year!
That is a HUGE improvement because the success rate for previous vaccines has been only 25%!
There have been so many breakthroughs in HIV/AIDS research lately. Are we finally getting a glimpse of the light at the end of the tunnel? We hope so!
