by ARTiFactor on Nov. 05th, 2007

Over 90 per cent of the subjects in the phase 1 trials developed an immune response to HIV. The study was conducted by researchers at Karolinska Institutet (KI), Karolinska University Hospital and the Swedish Institute for Infectious Disease Control (SMI).

Suppression of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 viral load with selenium supplementation: a randomized controlled trial. Hurwitz BE, et al.

"CONCLUSIONS: Daily selenium supplementation can suppress the progression of HIV-1 viral burden and provide indirect improvement of CD4 count. The results support the use of selenium as a simple, inexpensive, and safe adjunct therapy in HIV spectrum disease." And this was only with 200 mcg of selenium, where it is safe to take 800 mcg per day.

This HIV vaccine trial did not use selenium supplementation.

The vaccine is what is known as a genetic vaccine, which uses parts of the virus DNA to stimulate the rapid endogenous production of the proteins for which the injected DNA codes.
