The Vaccine candidate being developed in Australia in partnership with the University of Queensland and CSL might be dumped today due to issues with false positives for HIV.
In it’s initial reporting The Daily Telegraph mentions this link and the reason for what looks to be the abrupt end of the government contract with CSL.
“The trial of Australia’s homegrown COVID-19 vaccine has been abruptly halted after patients returned false positive test results for HIV.”
“Although it poses no health risk testing in the COVID-19 vaccine trials reportedly showed it could lead to people returning false positive HIV test results”
There will be a press conference today at 9am.
