"Prospects dim for live AIDS vaccine" (SN: 2/13/99, p. 100) reported that 6 of 8 infant monkeys died after receiving a vaccine for simian immunodeficiency virus. The article also stated that 2 young monkeys given the vaccine developed AIDS and 5 of 16 adult monkeys died from the vaccine. According to Ruth M. Ruprecht, the infant monkeys have immune problems but not full-blown AIDS, and although five adult monkeys died, only one death was conclusively attributed to AIDS.
