I'm curious, why would you doubt Merck -- the pharmaceutical company?
Was it because the HIV vaccine that Merck was working on was
"regarded as one of the most promising in the fight against Aids"
Many drugs in testing today are often touted as being "promising". Such descriptions are often used in such situations by the pharmaceutical
companies. It's a way of garnering more investment.
If Merck, through their research and testing, determined that a drug was ineffective why would you doubt them? You wouldn't want a company to
produce and sell ineffective
drugs would you?
And why, I have to ask, would you think that all hope of finding a cure has now gone by the wayside? Do you think that testing and research into HIV
will now stop?
When you consider the profits to be gained for pharmaceutical companies like Merck if and when they find an HIV or AIDS cure, they won't stop just
because they found one drug "ineffective".
