Researcher Admits to HIV Vaccine Fraud

United States prosecutors have filed charges against a researcher who admitted to fraudulently reporting data while conducting research for a HIV vaccine. Dong-Pyou Han, a former laboratory manager at Iowa State University, admitted to putting human antibodies into samples of rabbit’s blood to create the illusion that an experimental vaccine was potentially effective. After millions in grants from the National Institutes of Health and years of work, another laboratory discovered irregularities that showed the results were false.

Researchers trace HIV adaptation to its human host

In a new study that traces the evolution of HIV in North America, researchers have found evidence that the virus is slowly adapting over time to its human hosts. However, this change is so gradual that it is unlikely to have an impact on vaccine design.

Scripps Research Institute Scientists Find New Point of Attack on HIV for Vaccine Development

A team led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) working with the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI) has discovered a new vulnerable site on the HIV virus. The newly identified site can be attacked by human antibodies in a way that neutralizes the infectivity of a wide variety of HIV strains.

Crowd-funded HIV vaccine project sparks debate

The Immunity Project is an initiative to crowd-source money to make a new HIV vaccine. However many scientists are sceptical: "It seems like they’re going straight to the public and making appeals to emotion because they don’t have the scientific background to establish themselves in the research community," says virologist Abbie Smith at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.

Is an AIDS Cure Hiding in the Blood of 'Elite Controllers?'

Some people contract HIV and never get sick. These people are called “controllers,” and studying them has long been a focus for researchers seeking a cure for the disease. Now, an ambitious plan called The Immunity Project has released a white paper outlining how they plan to create an HIV vaccine—free for the entire world population—based on the computerized analysis of blood from HIV controllers.

Durable end to AIDS will require HIV vaccine development

Anthony Fauci argues that while broader global access to antiretroviral therapies and wider implementation of proven HIV prevention strategies could potentially control and perhaps end the HIV/AIDS pandemic, a safe and at least moderately effective HIV vaccine is needed to reach this goal more expeditiously and in a more sustainable way.

Tricky Protein May Help HIV Vaccine Development

Researchers at Duke University have mapped the structure of a key part of the HIV envelope protein, the gp41 membrane proximal external region (MPER), the spot where some of the most effective antibodies found in HIV patients bind and disable the virus. The discovery will aid vaccine research.
