This could be extremely helpful to many.

From: http://now.msn.com/brazilian-aids-vaccine-to-start-primate-testing-in-late-2013-1

Twenty years ago, the idea of an AIDS vaccine was closer to science fiction than reality. But now, researchers from the University of Sao Paulo plan on starting primate tests for their HIVBr18 vaccine later this year. Yeah, science! Though the scientists say the vaccine, at its current stage of development, won't eliminate the AIDS virus from an organism, it will maintain it at a viral load low enough that the infected person will neither develop an immunodeficiency nor transmit the virus. The Sao Paulo Research Foundation says monkey trials are expected to last two years, after which the first clinical trials in humans could begin. [Source]

Brazilian scientists moving ahead with AIDS vaccine testing
A Brazilian Scientists? That's a shit load of scientists - how many do they need to test a single vaccine?

/Seriously good news though.

Barebacking rent boys is back on the menu!
:laugh:

Alot can go wrong in two years folks. I'm all for the CURE but lets wait until it's proven in the track record. It would be good to know that our immunity systems may work well in the future though. :) Something to look forward too.
