AVAC Praises Thai AIDS Vaccine Trial Collaborators and Volunteers for Historic Study
Date:9/24/2009

Military HIV Research Program and funded by the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), have been clear that additional studies would be needed to further understand any positive result. There is now an imperative on the trial team and the field as a whole to determine what those steps will be and to implement them with all due haste. Additional analysis of the trial data are expected to be presented at the annual AIDS vaccine meeting that will take place in October.

The trial looked at vaccine impact on risk of infection and on viral load among vaccine and placebo recipients who received the vaccine and went on to acquire HIV.

"These results move us one step further along in the marathon journey of AIDS vaccine research that continues. They also demonstrate that the scientific process is remarkable and unpredictable, and underscores the need for testing strategies in human efficacy trials. We look forward to more data from the trial in the coming weeks that will help guide the decisions about the design of additional trials of this strategy, and the impact of this finding on broader AIDS vaccine research," Warren said.

"AVAC calls on the trial sponsors, vaccine manufacturers, researchers, funders and others in the field to work quickly, cooperatively and boldly to translate these results into development of a scientific action plan, a plan for community engagement in Thailand and around the world, and a broader communication effort to convey both the promise and limitations of this result. Above all, we must ensure that all stakeholders, including private industry -- which played a critical role in this trial -- reaffirm their commitments to w
