HIV vaccine candidate induces immune response in early clinical trial: “An important step forward” | CNN

CNN — An experimental HIV vaccine has been shown to induce broadly neutralizing antibody precursors among a small group of volunteers in a phase 1 study. The results suggest that a two-dose regimen of the vaccine, given at eight weeks of interval, may elicit immune responses against human immunodeficiency virus. The results of the clinical …

Scientists reveal key differences in immune response to inactivated COVID-19 virus and mRNA vaccines

New study reveals key differences in immune responses of inactivated SARS-CoV-2 vaccines and COVID-19 spike mRNA. Although both protect against serious diseases, inactivated SARS-CoV-2 Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the official name of the viral strain that causes coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Before this name was adopted, it was commonly referred to as …
