ANTHONY FAUCI, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda
Is there any hope for an HIV vaccine? According to Anthony Fauci, of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, there is – but it might not be a perfect vaccine. He believes that even a vaccine that does not confer total immunity could still be of use, because it may slow disease progression and also reduce the spread of the disease. He talked with Derek Thorne about his co-authored paper in the New England Journal of Medicine.
