南非参与研制的艾滋病疫苗即将开始试验
 

  新华网约翰内斯堡5月28日电(记者李建民)由南非和美国科研人员共同研制的艾滋病疫苗将于6月进入人体临床试验阶段。这将是整个非洲地区第一次对由非洲国家参与核心研发的艾滋病疫苗进行人体试验。

戴斯蒙德·图图艾滋病研究中心是承担此次艾滋病疫苗临床试验的主要机构之一。该研究中心主任研究员琳达·基尔·贝克28日在接受新华社记者采访时说,用于此次临床试验的疫苗是该中心、开普敦大学以及美国国家卫生研究院合作研究的成果,疫苗研制历时7年。

据贝克介绍,疫苗用天花病毒作艾滋病病毒免疫原载体。第一阶段的临床试验主要测试该疫苗的免疫反应,以及进一步确认其安全性。前期试验已经表明该疫苗是安全的,这是开展临床试验的基本要求。

贝克说,只有在安全性确保无误的前提下,才能进入临床试验第二阶段,以检验疫苗的有效性。据介绍,在南非本土的临床试验将于6月份在开普敦和索韦托同时展开。

贝克说,该艾滋病疫苗研制如获得成功,将对南非及世界各地防控艾滋病具有重要意义。目前,南非面临的艾滋病防控形势仍然很严峻,但南非政府正在实施的《2007-2011年艾滋病防治国家战略计划》已初显成效,该国的艾滋病病毒感染率呈逐步下降趋势。

南非是世界上艾滋病病毒感染率最高的国家之一。据联合国统计,在南非近4800万人口中至少有550万人感染了艾滋病病毒。
