Barouch, MD, PhD, Director of the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research at BIDMC and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School chatting about Johnson & Johnson vaccine: “We are very encouraged by the results of this preclinical HIV vaccine study, and the findings lead to a clear path forward for evaluating this HIV vaccine candidate in humans”, reported that “the findings of the study “are promising enough that Johnson & Johnson has begun enrolling 400 human volunteers to begin phase 1 trials”.

According to domain name whois records, Johnson & Johnson (J&J) purchased the domain name The domain name has been registered since December 15, 2003 and Johnson & Johnson took ownership on or about July 28, 2015.
