    GILEAD's "Stand UP For Love Campaign" is being stopped

    Over a year ago I joined Gilead's third phase of clinical trials for their HIV Vaccine. The Vaccine had been showing promising results and was being marketed to the Gay Community under the marketing slogan "Stand Up for Love"

    As of a few months ago I they were reaching the requirement of 2500 national participants.
    Today I received a call from my immunologist who has been on of the offices gathering data for the study. During the very short phone call I was told that they had been informed that the results are NOT showing the results they were hoping for (that this particular vaccine would help prevent a percentage of HIV negative people from contracting HIV) . And they have monitoring facility has decided to halt the study. Those people in the study will continue to receive assistance as agreed upon in the original paperwork. Within a few weeks the monitoring organization will forward each patient's details to the local office so that each patient can by "un-blinded" from the study.

    What a bummer!
