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]
