The first vaccine anti-AIDS for children has revealed to be effective.
It’s the important objective reached by Italian doctors at the Ospedale Bambin Gesù in Rome.
The test has involved 20 vertically HIV-infected children aged 6-16, of which ten injected with the experimental vaccine.
After 96 weeks of monitoring, those ones have showed an increased reactivity of their immune system to the virus compared to the other ten who just followed the traditional antiretroviral therapy.
An important step in the cure of AIDS to reduce the number of infections in little ones.
