A successful vaccine for the prevention and/or immunotherapy against HIV/AIDS is one of the prominent challenges of the 21st century. To date, all human vaccine trials against this virus/disease have resulted in failure, or at best have shown very low efficacy. Models of Protection Against HIV/SIV will allow for an in-depth reflection on the perspectives for vaccine and therapy research derived from recent studies. This book is structured in a unique way, looking at three models of resistance/protection separately and then comparing the models against one another. The easy-to-understand format gives this book a cross-discipline appeal -- an important one-stop-shop reference for those in the scientific community, medical care, public health and academia alike.
