HIV and Vaccine Development
In the year 2002 HIV was found to be the most important cause for the increase in death rate. There were treatments like Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) but they didn’t completely cure the disease and hence vaccination was the safer choice. Vaccination was the only way by which the AIDS pandemic can be halted. Classic vaccines mimic natural immunity against reinfection generally seen in individuals recovered from infection. Initially the vaccines before customized was tested with animal models and then it was approved but now after a long-time research it is been stated that even vaccine is not able to give complete cure for HIV.
