At 20 years after Bette Körber expert in genetics began fighting HIV, she and her team are starting to see first results. Researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory are preparing for the last part of testing anti-AIDS vaccine, testing it on humans.
Tests conducted so far among the animals showed a strong immune response, and researchers expect that they will obtain, finally, a scientific breakthrough that will solve the global AIDS crisis. The vaccine is now in a crucial phase, following to observe, people’s responses, to determine if it is safe and is effective in AIDS infections.
“The main purpose of my life was to get this vaccine. At this point, because positive results arising from studies on animals, I am confident that this is a good approach that deserves to be tested and among people, “said geneticist Bette Körber.
