BBC News - Vaccine 'clears HIV-like virus' in monkeys

A vaccine for the monkey equivalent of HIV appears to eradicate the virus, a study suggests.
Research published in the journal Nature has shown that vaccinated monkeys can clear Simian Immunodeficiency Virus (SIV) infection from their bodies.
It was effective in nine of the 16 monkeys that were inoculated.
The US scientists say they now want to use a similar approach to test a vaccine for HIV in humans.
