China Tests AIDS Vaccine On Humans

China Tests AIDS Vaccine On Humans

By Marietta Gross - Scoop Media Auckland.

Scoop Report: China has begun AIDS vaccine tests trials on humans. The first candidate to receive a vaccine was a twenty-year old, reports the public news agency Xinhua. Tests on nine other human-subjects followed. In total there are 49 volunteers available for the test series.

According to official information around 840.000 Chinese people carry the HI-Virus. International health experts estimate that the actual number of Chinese infected with HIV is far higher.

Only one AIDS vaccine worldwide has so far passed through all three necessary test stages; but it turned out to be unusable.
