A small trial has shown a new AIDS vaccine can suppress the AIDS virus for at least a year. The study subjects had HIV infection but had not been treated with antiviral drugs. Their HIV levels went down by 80% after four months of treatment. Ideally, the vaccine is designed so that a once a year injection can keep the HIV stable. Side effects of the vaccine included lymph node swelling which signifies the restarting of the immune system. The swelling is not painful.
