Scientists will now carry out a trial named "Imbokodo", the Zulu word for rock, on 2,600 women in southern Africa.
Study leader Dan Barouch, a Harvard Medical School professor said that the results till now are "promising" but it is best to be "cautious".
In addition to being well-tolerated by all the test subjects and inducing an immuneresponse against HIV in humans, the vaccine provided 67% protection against infection from the simian-human immunodeficiency virus in the rhesus monkeys. "We eagerly await the results of the phase 2b efficacy trial".
Only one so far, RV144, yielded some protection. "But the data is promising and we are happy to report the immuneresponse".
The trial recruited 393 healthy, HIV-uninfected adults (aged 18-50 years) from 12 clinics in east Africa, South Africa, Thailand, and the US. They received 4 vaccinations through a period of forty-eight weeks.
In the APPROACH trial of almost 400 participants, researchers conducted a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to assess the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of several vaccine regimens in humans.
Previous HIV-1 vaccine candidates have typically been limited to specific regions of the world.
And although we now live in the era of PrEP - a highly effective, preventative drug - its high price tag makes it out of reach for numerous millions affected.
Until now, all the positive results show that researchers can continue testing it.
Some of the volunteers reported some side effects but the researchers said they were tolerable. The findings showed the vaccines induced robust and comparable immuneresponses in humans and monkeys and protected monkeys against acquisition of infection.
We can not say anything on a note as the majority of studies which are done on the animals prove to be wrong when seen in humans.
"This one is novel in many ways, so it is exciting, but we have a long way to go".
Other researchers caution seeing this vaccine as the final solution to the virus.
With 1.8 million new cases of human immunodeficiency virus every year, according to United Nations estimates, and nearly 37 million people living with HIV worldwide, the quest for a vaccine has been urgent - and extremely hard. Worldwide, that number is even more daunting: About 1.8 million people are thought to have been infected in 2016.
About 35 million have died. The virus is able to mutate to avoid the attack of the human immune system, so we can't develop immunity to it.
Barouch disclosed support from the NIH, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Janssen Vaccines & Prevention BV, and is a co-inventor on HIV-1 vaccine antigen patents that have been licensed to Janssen Vaccines & Prevention BV.
Dr Brady added that in the meantime there were already tools that were effective for preventing the disease from spreading, such as contraception and treatments for HIV-positive people that prevent them from passing on the virus.
