HIV prototype vaccine tested on humans shows positive results

A prototype vaccine against HIV, the virus that causes aids, is working wonders.

Researchers in Spain say that tests began on healthy humans about a year ago after animal tests showed it was working positively.

Of the people receiving the vaccine, 95 percent developed bodily defenses and managed to stimulate both the production of cells and antibodies and that would effectively fight back HIV.

The next round of tests will be on volunteers already infected with HIV to see if it can be used to treat aids as well as prevent it.
