WASHINGTON, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- The first HIV vaccine efficacy study in seven years has begun in South Africa to test whether an modified vaccine candidate can provide effective protection against the AIDS virus, the U.S. National Institutes of Health said Monday.

The study, called HVTN 702, aims to enroll 5,400 sexually active men and women aged 18 to 35 years, making it the largest and most advanced HIV vaccine clinical trial to take place in South Africa, where more than 1,000 people become infected with HIV every day.

""If deployed alongside our current armory of proven HIV prevention tools, a safe and effective vaccine could be the final nail in the coffin for HIV,"" Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health and a co-funder of the trial, said in a statement.

""Even a moderately effective vaccine would significantly decrease the burden of HIV disease over time in countries and populations with high rates of HIV infection, such as South Africa.""

The experimental vaccine regimen being tested in HVTN 702 is based on the one investigated in the RV144 clinical trial in Thailand that was found to be 31.2 percent effective at preventing HIV infection over the 3.5-year follow-up after vaccination.

The new vaccine regimen has been adapted to the HIV subtype that predominates in southern Africa and a smaller initial trial involving 252 people has found that it was safe for the study participants and induced comparable immune responses to those reported in RV144.

The new trial, to be conducted at 15 sites across South Africa, aims to test whether it will provide greater and more sustained protection than the RV144 regimen.

Volunteers will been randomly assigned to receive either the investigational vaccine regimen or a placebo. All participants will receive a total of five injections over one year, and results are expected in late 2020.

""HIV has taken a devastating toll in South Africa, but now we begin a scientific exploration that could hold great promise for our country,"" said HVTN 702 Protocol Chair Glenda Gray, president and chief executive officer of the South African Medical Research Council.

""If an HIV vaccine were found to work in South Africa, it could dramatically alter the course of the pandemic.""


BEIJING Walter Brown Jersey , Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- China has lodged solemn representations to Britain over its foreign secretary's remarks on Hong Kong affairs, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said Thursday.

Hua made the remarks at a routine press briefing in response to a question regarding a British human rights activist's barred entry to Hong Kong.

According to reports Tyler Zeller Jersey , Benedict Rogers, a British human rights activist and co-founder of the Conservative Party's Human Rights Commission Terry Rozier Jersey , was denied entry to Hong Kong after arriving from Bangkok on Wednesday.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said London needed an explanation from Hong Kong and Beijing as "Hong Kong's high degree of autonomy, and its rights and freedoms Shaquille O'Neal Jersey , are central to its way of life and should be fully respected."

Hua said Hong Kong is a special administrative region (SAR) of China, and therefore Hong Kong affairs are China's internal affairs.

She said that it is China's sovereign right to deny or approve anyone's entry to Hong Kong.

"Rogers himself is clear about whether his trip to Hong Kong was intended to interfere in the SAR's internal affairs and judicial independence Robert Parish Jersey ," said Hua, reiterating that China firmly opposes any government Reggie Lewis Jersey , organization or person's interference in China's domestic affairs.

MEXICO CITY, Jan. 11 (Xinhua) -- U.S. president-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday sparked anger, uncertainty and skepticism among Latin Americans, following his first press conference since winning the election.

Trump infuriated Mexicans once again by repeating his pledge to build a wall along the border and have Mexico foot the bill.

"We're going to start building" as soon as possible, and "Mexico in some form, and there are many different forms, will reimburse us," said Trump.

Mexico's most outspoken Trump critic, former president Vicente Fox, wasted no time in responding.

"Neither today, nor tomorrow nor never Mexico will pay for that stupid wall," Fox posted to Twitter.

"If Trump wants a monument to his ego, let him pay for it!!," added Fox.

He also warned "it's clear that we're facing a new era of dictatorship with Donald Trump," but he added there was no need to fear Trump.

Mexican historian and intellectual Enrique Krauze echoed Fox's sentiments with a tweet, saying that there was "no way" Mexico will pay for the wall.

Like many other observers around the globe, including in the United States, Krauze noted Trump's "aggressive" manner when speaking to reporters.

"Trump's level of aggression and disregard for civil debate and the press is terrifying. And he's not even in power yet," said Krauze.

Mexico's representative to the Washington-based Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Alfonso de Alba, said a wall would not necessarily be effective, and neighbors should take a more humanitarian and comprehensive approach to immigration.

"In the end, they (migrants) do not contribute solely to their country of origin, but also to the country they end up in," said De Alba, who was attending an event at Mexico's Foreign Affairs Ministry.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto also rejected Trump's demand, saying that Mexico will not pay for the wall but will seek open and complete negotiations with Trump't government.

In Cuba, people who watched the live broadcast remained perplexed about the future of bilateral ties with the United States.

"What seems obviou.
