Here’s one more inconvenient blip on the ethical radar:
The world could have a new vaccine designed to kill the AIDS virus in as little as three to four years according to an Atlanta-based group working on the vaccine.
The vaccine works using a one-two pharmaceutical punch to prime the body then kill the virus.
“It raises both antibodies that can block the virus and it raises white blood cells called t cells that can kill the virus infected cells,” said Dr. Robinson. “So it really has two methods of controlling an HIV/AIDS infection once it enters the body.”
Will this work out? No one can know for sure, but if it does work within 15 years or so, many people will owe a significant apology to millions of boys around the world. The apology wouldn’t be worth much, but they’d still owe it.
