Promising Hep C vaccine

Forty-one healthy patients were given the vaccine. Scientists said it produced a "very strong" immune response which lasted for at least a year and had no major side-effects.

Prof Klenerman said: "The immune responses we've seen are exciting and we are beginning the next stage of trials. While we are hopeful, it could be a long road to any vaccine that protects people against hepatitis C."

The next step will be to give the vaccine to people at-risk of hepatitis C infection to see whether it protects against the virus.
That may be the single gayest thing I have ever read on this board. Or the old one. ;)

I'm like 99% sure that even if this vaccine is tested and approved, she'll still prevent me from getting it. "It hasn't been around long enough!" she says. Idiot, that's what clinical trials are for.

D: But being vaccinated is a good thing. Of course there will be risk but all medicine has that.

I'm lucky I even got a tetanus booster. My mom will at least allow the vital vaccines, but my dad thinks they all cause mental retardation or cancer. "Before vaccines, children didn't get cancer!" he said.

Before vaccines people didn't live long enough for cancer to be a problem.

He doesn't know I got a tetanus booster. He is convinced it is spreading basically every modern disease imaginable.

He's an idiot, basically. He's smart, but he's also an idiot about so many things.
