A few vax

Some complex results from trials of a new HIV vaccine indicate that the vaccine both does and does not help prevent new HIV infections.

The vaccine proved moderately effective for Asians and Blacks but not for Whites or Hispanics. While the results don’t bode well for FDA approval of the vaccine, researchers have some hope of identifying why the vaccine worked for some ethnic groups and not others and using this information to improve the vaccine.
