New potent and broadly effective antibodies against HIV found
« on: August 18, 2011, 12:45:43 PM »

Broad neutralization coverage of HIV by multiple highly potent antibodies

The team behind the new study, led by Dennis Burton of the Scripps Research Institute in California, took samples from four people who had demonstrated a strong immune system response to HIV.

The found antibodies at work that were ten times more powerful than the ones previously discovered - and 100 times more potent than those first found to be effective against HIV.

It is thought that using several of the antibodies in combination could provide protection against up to 89 per cent of different strains of HIV.

Well it's good that they have discovered these. Now if only they can get this developed into a vaccine that works effectively. I guess this will take another 10 years...
