SEATTLE – (Nov. 19, 2021) – Scott Hammer – physician, professor, educator, advisor, giant in the field of HIV therapy and prevention – passed away on November 17, 2021. Scott was a transcendent personality in both the HIV therapy and prevention fields, amplifying how his presence will be missed by everyone.
SEATTLE – (Aug. 31, 2021) – A primary analysis of an experimental HIV vaccine regimen being studied in a high-incidence population of young women in sub-Saharan Africa found the experimental vaccine did not provide sufficient protection against HIV infection. No significant safety concerns were identified, but because the vaccine regimen failed to meet the study’s primary endpoint, with results falling short of statistical significance, the Imbokodo study, also called HVTN 705/HPX2008, will be discontinued.

A NIAID-funded HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN) cross-protocol analysis designed to assess the self-reported beneficial and negative social impacts (NSI) experienced by study participants was published earlier this year in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes (JAIDS). The study enrolled 8347 people across 48 completed preventive HIV vaccine trials, which were conducted between December 2000 and September 2017.
