Crucell and Harvard to Test Experimental AIDS Vaccine in Uninfected Adults

August 11, 2010

The pharmaceutical company Crucell, in collaboration with Harvard University, "plans to test its experimental AIDS vaccine in the U.S. and in Africa, advancing the quest for a protective shot against" HIV, Bloomberg reports. The trial will test the vaccine in uninfected adults "to assess its safety and ability to prompt an immune response ... the company said in a statement." Bloomberg continues, "The vaccine combines shots ... in a so-called prime-boost approach that's designed to both kill infected cells and prevent HIV from entering those that are uninfected" (Bennett, 8/11).
