Same-Sex Households: Activists Say, Protect the Whole Family (Just in Case)
A new petition is urging the CDC to recommend the bacterial meningitis vaccine for infants and children. LGBT activists started the petition in response to the recent bacterial meningitis outbreak among men who have sex with men (MSM), arguing that children living in the more than 115,000 same-sex U.S. households should be protected.

New Vaccine Clears AIDS-Causing Virus in Monkeys
After vaccinating 16 rhesus macaque monkeys, the scientists then infected them with a highly aggressive form of SIV. Nine of the monkeys gradually cleared the virus—the first time this feat has ever been achieved in this avenue of HIV study. After the investigators ground up all of the monkeys’ organs and analyzed 240 samples from each to look for virus, finding none, they pronounced the monkeys cured.

Strong Support for Vaccinating Young Gay Men for HPV
A syndicate of sexual health physicians have published an editorial in which they spotlight high rates of HPV-related anal disease in gay men and show how the vaccine is both cost-effective and beneficial to public health. 
In fact, the CDC is now recommending all 11- and 12-year-old boys receive the vaccination, as well as males up to age 26.

…Another HIV Vaccine Trial Shuts Down
In the latest of a string of major setbacks in the search for an HIV vaccine, researchers have shuttered a trial after the experimental vaccine failed to both prevent HIV transmission and to reduce viral load in those who contracted the virus. 
Called HVTN 505, the Phase IIb study was conducted by the NIAID-supported HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN). It began in 2009 and enrolled 2,504 men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgendered people who have sex with men in 21 sites in 19 U.S. cities.
