Vaccine Program to Focus on Infants

Vaccine Program to Focus on Infants


The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation has received a five-year, $9.7 million grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to develop a program to test candidate vaccines to prevent HIV infection in children. The vaccine program will be the first of its kind to support basic research and clinical trials specific to breast-feeding infants, according to Pamela W. Barnes, Glaser foundation president. 'Children have been virtually absent from HIV vaccine research,' she says, 'despite having the most to gain from such a discovery.'
