The vaccine cut the risk of becoming infected with HIV by more than 31 percent in the world's largest AIDS vaccine trial of more than 16,000 volunteers in Thailand, researchers announced Thursday in Bangkok.

Best belated birthday present ever. Even if it's not 100% effective, it's still a step in the proper direction. And an effing big one.
  • OK, so I'm to lazy/short on time to read the article, but, from what I know of vaccines, I'd very strongly bet that by tinkering with the ingredients, they can greatly increase the success rate. Of course, it's a fine line between making the vaccine as strong as possible to give the greatest possible protection, while not making it so strong it causes HIV.

    But, WOW! That they got that far, that's amazing news!
    • Good to have an educated perspective. Yeah: a vaccine that's over 30% effective exists. Holy fucking shit.
