When the AIDS crisis was in its early stages in the 1980s, an editor said to me, “Before it’s over, we all will know someone impacted by this disease.”
And seems we do. But a new drug tested as a vaccine against HIV shows big promise. Two studies using the drug on monkeys yielded 100 percent protection in both groups.
The drug, if proven safe, would be given as an injection every one to three months. And then before it’s over, hopefully, we all would know of no one who has died of AIDS.
