How successful is the new HIV vaccine trial?

Is the new HIV/AIDS vaccine tested in Pune by NACO, meant for people who are suffering from AIDS or for those who have not contracted AIDS but can use it for prevention?


The trial recently announced is just the beginning of the testing process in humans. In this stage (phase 1) the candidate vaccine is tried in only a few persons for safety. Later trials will determine whether it will be effective. As planned this vaccine will be for preventing infection.
