HIV Vaccine trial stopped

Another HIV vaccine trial has stopped after more men given the vaccine developed the virus compared to those given the placebo.

A study sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases enrolled 2500 gay men in a trial testing a new HIV vaccine. The trial was halted after 27 men given the vaccine became infected, compared to 21 placebo participants.

Men given the vaccine who became infected did not have less of the virus in their blood.
