Scripps Research-led consortium receives $129 million NIH award to bring new HIV vaccination approach into clinical testing

The candidate vaccine products are designed to be administered in multiple stages to induce immune system proteins called broadly neutralizing antibodies (bnAbs). In multiple animal studies, bnAbs have been shown to provide long-lasting protection against exposure to multiple HIV strains.

HVTN's large-scale HIV vaccine efficacy trials fully enrolled

The HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN), headquartered at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, has fully enrolled its four ongoing large-scale HIV vaccine efficacy trials. The clinical trials, underway on four continents in 12 countries, are made possible by 12,669 study participants and the collaborative efforts of HVTN study teams, all on a journey to find a safe and effective HIV vaccine. Complete enrollment facilitates the collection and analysis of trial-specific data, enabling researchers to answer research questions.

Low trust in vaccines 'a global crisis'

Public mistrust of vaccines means the world is taking a step backwards in the fight against deadly yet preventable infectious diseases, warn experts. A Wellcome Trust analysis includes responses from more than 140,000 people in over 140 countries. Eastern Europe was the world region most sceptical of vaccines, with only 50% of people confident vaccines were safe, with Western Europe in second place, at 59%. People in France were also among the most likely to disagree that vaccines were effective, at 19%, and to disagree that vaccines were important for children to have, at 10%. The World Health Organization lists vaccine hesitancy as one of the top 10 threats to global health.

Will a vaccine crisis of confidence impact the global response to HIV?

Mitchell Warren of AVAC: "The implications of the anti-vaccination movement are enormous. Just as vaccines against some of the greatest global killers finally come within reach, fear and misinformation could diminish vital commitments to continued vaccine research, and important investments in vaccine education and delivery."

Despite Uptick, Black and Latinx People Have Relatively Low Participation in HIV Vaccine Trials

Black and Latinx people historically have not willfully participated in clinical trials in high numbers. Medical mistrust of research and health care institutions has long been a problem for conducting biomedical research. So what's causing the racial disparities in research participation, and what are researchers doing about it?

NIH Awards Will Advance Development of Vaccines for Sexually Transmitted Infections

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health, today announced awards to establish four Cooperative Research Centers (CRCs) focused on developing vaccines to prevent sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The grants, totaling $41.6 million over five years, will support collaborative, multidisciplinary research on the bacteria that cause syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia. At the end of the program, each center is expected to identify at least one candidate vaccine ready for testing in clinical trials.

Community Consensus Statement on Access to HIV Treatment and its Use for Prevention

Together, we can make it happen

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
