The unsuccessful outcome of a number of vaccine trials in the quest to conquer HIV-1 demonstrates the difficulties inherent in fighting diseases that afflict our world, and the poor disproportionately, especially the developing nations. A quarter century has elapsed since AIDS became a recognized major threat to human health, yet the evergrowing volume of scientific data has failed to meet its prime objective, a cure for AIDS or an HIV prevention vaccine. This brief article suggests several intriguing possibilities for researchers to consider, including small RNA-based immunity, as they seek to find a vaccine for the HIV-1 infection that threatens not only individuals and families, but in some cases entire nations.
