''LONDON, ONT. - The green light has been given to test a Canadian-made vaccine for HIV/AIDS on humans starting next month.

The vaccine, developed by University of Western Ontario professor Chil-Yong Kang, has been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration. The testing of the vaccine - called SAV001 Aids vaccine - will start with trials to double-check its safety. Kang and his colleagues have teamed up with Sumagen Canada to test the HIV/AIDS vaccine. It is the only AIDS vaccine developed in Canada and one of only a few in theworld to be tested on humans.

Kang said he and his fellow researchers hope the vaccine will prevent HIV infection, saving millions of lives.''

So ya. Pretty neat?! Approved by the FDA, guess that's a good sign.

Just thought I'd share.

EDIT: Slightly more elaborated article:

If that works I think it's amazing. Could really help millions of people.

I doesn't say how it will be injected though, is it via pill, shot or bag?

Ya I'm kind of disappointed by the bluntness of the article lol It's probably one of newsflashes that came out a little too early. I'd imagine it would be injected, just coming from a non-medical standpoint.

The method of injecting is probably all but blunt.

In other words, I believe it will be injected too.

To Vaccinate implies injection.

It was a milk-in-bag joke that failed. You know, canada and all...

For being such a news item I'm surprised at the lacking news article as well.

I had a friend who was held at gunpoint as a cashier. The robber told him to give him all the money in the register and what not. Apparently my friend then replied, "Would you like a slurpee with that?"

I only skim read your post, saw the words injected, pill and bag in the same sentence. Play on.

Are you sure? I don't think the word has any relation to the method of delivery. Look at the polio vaccine.

Speaking as someone with a bitch of a cold atm, I can say I am looking forward to this.


We would be such a bitch species if we vaccinated against the common cold...

Man the **** up and take your colds, people. If you got AIDS and the cold almost kills you, too bad. You shouldn't been taking it up the bum unprotected, shared needles, or been born to someone who did.

I love the common cold.

If you had any sense at all you'd realize that the places where overpopulation is even remotely a problem are actually the places where people are living in the worst conditions. In the western world, overpopulation isn't an issue at all, birth rates are either stable or climbing slowly enough that it's sustainable. The reason for this is simple, when 7/10 or whatever percentage it is of your kids die during the first year, it's smart to have a lot of kids so they can take care of the rest of the family when they grow up. Improving living standards helps quell population growth, that's what needs to be focused on, not some idiotic idea that we're in trouble because there's too many africans and not because we're keeping billions of people in poverty and shitty conditions where they're not being able to contribute to the global economy at all.

Not that it's not great, but if it becomes easily accessible, then.. Overpopulation ftw.

Well, I don't think anyone was reffering only to the western world.
Not sure if a sig is a necessity.

I hope they'll ask a reasonable price for it, so the people who really need it could afford it.
