Promising Results for New Hepatitis C Vaccine
« on: November 12, 2014, 11:05:18 am »
Researchers gave the experimental hep C vaccine to 15 HCV-negative participants after previous research among animals showed that the vaccine elicited antiviral activity.

Authors stated that the vaccine delivered “durable, broad, sustained, and balanced T-cell responses, characteristic of those associated with viral control.”

Phase II studies of the vaccine have begun in Baltimore and San Francisco. Results are expected in 2016.

What I would like to know is if someone is cured of HepC will a vaccine protect them from a future reinfection from a host source?
