NIAID Phase III HIV vaccine trial to determine correlates of protection will not proceed

Phase III trial in Thailand to determine efficacy will be supported by NIAID through a combined NIAID-DoD Program

Two recent decisions will substantially contribute to a coordinated and comprehensive U.S. government effort to develop preventive HIV vaccines.

DoD HIV Research and Development Program is transferred to NIH

NIAID, which has the primary responsibility for HIV/AIDS research within the NIH, will assume responsibility for this program beginning October 1, 2002. Both the NIH and USAMRMC are committed to maintaining and building on the various strengths of each program. The Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine, a private, non-profit organization that works closely with the Walter Reed Army Institute for Research (WRAIR), a subordinate laboratory of USAMRMC, will be a resource for both programs.

NIAID and USAMRMC have a common goal: to prevent the further spread of HIV/AIDS by developing safe and effective vaccines, other prevention strategies and innovative HIV treatments. The research activities of both groups are complementary and will be effectively integrated. The major difference between the two is the constituencies they serve: the USAMRMC research program primarily serves young, healthy adults on active military duty who are subject to worldwide deployment, while the NIAID research program serves all civilian age groups and addresses all HIV-associated conditions, such as opportunistic
