HIV vaccine study

The AIDS Research Alliance of America, in collaboration with UCLA launched a trial of a new prime-boost HIV vaccine today. The NIH funded trial is being conducted in twelve cities across the nation with the hope of reducing the viral-load of those who become infected with HIV. Even if this vaccine does prove successful in deterring contraction of the virus how far are we from a completed HIV vaccine and is there hope for a cure?
