Hopefully, however, this discovery, in regards to HIV, will be irrelevant, and a Nigerian surgeon's apparent vaccine will prove not to be the DOQRAPS entry it seems. The nature of the publication, being highly secretive, etc., is either worrying or encouraging. He could be scamming for publicity, but since he offers to open it up under contract (the journal editor apparently agreed to his terms, and found his methods "plausible"), or he could really be on to something and smart enough to protect himself from Pharma. I'm hoping for the latter but have a sinking feeling about the former.
