Prospect is bleak for AIDS vaccine

Scientific consensus on the prospect for development of an effective preventive AIDS vaccine is bleak, according to the results of a poll of AIDS researchers and scientists which was released today.

The poll of AIDS scientists offered significant additional credibility to the recent public call by AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) to halt US government funding of repeatedly failing AIDS vaccine research - which for more than 20 years has shown few results other than how not to develop a vaccine.
