But we’re still not convinced, and, even with one — people especially gay men should still wear a condom.
Johnson & Johnson executives announced this week that after 10 years, they, uhm, have found what appears to be the first human-cure for HIV/AIDS. The news comes after the CDC allegedly admitted after all this time that “undetectable people can’t actually transmit HIV/AIDS”.
The announcement came from the Global Citizens Festival, although, they wouldn’t quite say when and if the trials would begin or when the vaccine would go public if trials were successful.
For the past ten years, we have been working on an HIV vaccine, using an innovative technology platform, the same technology we are using to make vaccines for Ebola and Zika,” said Paul Stoffels, Chief Scientific Officer, Johnson & Johnson.
In early stage clinical studies, we have seen 100 percent immune response in 350 healthy volunteers who participated in the study,” he declared.
“Today, we are thrilled to announce for the first time that we are going into large scale efficacy testing of the vaccine in humans,” he announced to cheers and applause.
“As a scientist and a physician, I can tell you, this vaccine holds the promise of groundbreaking development,” he continued. “We all know that science is unpredictable, but these results make me more optimistic than ever that we will get to a vaccine in our lifetime and prevent people from contracting HIV forever.”
