Vaccination trial

Hey everyone,

I am new to the forum. My question will be rather odd. I have had an unprotected intercourse with someone who is a participant in an HIV vaccination trial at Walter Reed. What exactly is that study as I am having a hard time finding info on it. Do they use surface antigens? Am I at any risk? Any info will be appreciated.

It came up in a conversation in a couple of days after encounter. Participated in a study in 2008 and it was an hiv-1 vaccination trial through Walter Reed. I have tried finding any info on the study and nothing is there online. I think it was some kind of a closed study.

It was actually two trials. hiv and hep c vaccination. But no clue if attenuated live particles were used. Also a concern for a carrier type that just did not seroconvert.

Just don't know what the vaccine consisted of.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Have no idea. They don't give vaccinations to people that are HIV positive.

That is a good point. Thank you.
