The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports on the breakthrough efforts of scientists, including John A. Burns School of Medicine Clinical Professor Jerome Kim, who are seeking an AIDS vaccine.
Dr. Kim, a Colonel in the U.S. Army Medical Corps and deputy director for science at the U.S. Military HIV Research Program, is leading an international research program to study and develop a vaccine.
Kim’s team presented new research at September’s AIDS Vaccine 2011 Conference in Bangkok confirming the efficacy of a potential AIDS vaccine, the newspaper reported. The team was involved in an original vaccine clinical trial in 2009 which reported success in reducing AIDS infection by more than 30%.
