We May Very Well Beat HIV In Our Lifetime. New Vaccine Passes Phase 1 Of Human Trials

Sumagen Canada has announced the successful completion of a Phase 1 Clinical Trial of SAV001-H - a vaccine against HIV and AIDS.
After running for over a year from March 2012 through last month, the trial was designed to test if it was safe for real live human subjects. Phase 1 trials are the point where researchers see if their work don't do weird stuff to real people. The stakes are very high. And the SAV001-H has passed flawlessly.
SAV001-H is what's called a "killed whole virus vaccine,". It includes the actual HIV virus, but don't fret just yet - the live HIV viruses are genetically re-engineered to eliminate pathogenicity and are chemically treated and irradiated with gamma rays to make sure they are dead.
Sumagen is optimistic about their drug because other successful vaccines (including polio, influenza, rabies, and hepatitis A) work on the same principle.
The vaccine will prevent HIV infection by boosting the production of a variety of antibodies in the human immune system.
Still, its too early to tell, since Phase 2 and Phase 3 trials have yet to be completed. Nevertheless, we're on to something here. We may just beat HIV in this lifetime.
Einstein went through the most recent 30 years of his life attempting to consummate a Unified Field Theory. I, when all is said and done, discovered it incredibly hard to investigate the material for this article in an opportune way. The subject of time or space-time can be a puzzle. As a former architect I think that it's an interesting subject. Quicker than light (FTL) or "Superluminal Communication" as it is generally called, can be accomplished by utilizing Quantum Entanglement. Read more
Whether you follow any local dirt bike championship or a global level championship series, you will find one thing, which is expected – MX graphics. And the reason is simple; they rule the roost and impress the broadest possible audiences. If you closely look at any bike, you will see that people use my graphics all across the cycle, from its tank shrouds/fuel tank, side number plates, airbox, rear fender, front fender, front number plate, fork guards, etc. All these graphics are printed and laminated with the highest quality and push the beauty of a bike.
