Advances in HIV-1Vaccine Volume I
  • Description
  • Author(s) Information
Since the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was identified as the causative agent of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) represents a worldwide threat to public health and the economy. It has been estimated that 35.3 (32.2-38.8) million people were living with HIV globally at the end of 2012. HIV has two major types, HIV-1 and HIV-2, which are further divided into groups, subtypes and recombinant forms. Globally, over 90% of HIV infections belong to HIV-1 group M viruses. Despite of the successful use of highly active antiretroviral therapy, the high genetic diversity of the HIV genomehas challenged the development of drugs and vaccines. Twenty-five years of research into development of a vaccine to prevent or control HIV-1 infection doesn’t lead to available protective vaccines. The aim of this book is to provide an overview of the status of research within the HIV vaccine.
