Until Opexa can figure out why people like Lew and Chris S. seemed to get worse from the vaccine, I wouldn't want to take the risk. BUT..I would have definitely taken the risk if I hadn't been allowed to get the Revimmune treatment.
You were really fortunate to be fairly newly diagnosed and that seems to be ideal for Tovaxin. I was diagnosed in 1986, more than half my life ago. I just don't know if my immune system would react in the same way. I don't know why it should make a difference, but I'd wait until a vaccine was found that would work well on everyone, regardless of when they were diagnosed.
I don't know much about AIDS, but it seems like a vaccine for that would be difficult, given the fact that it is a retrovirus, can lay dormant for so long and mutates so frequently. BUT...If I had the HIV virus, I'd be the first one on line for that, too.
