Title: Engineered B cells in Mice produce broadly neutralizing anti-HIV antibodies
Post by: Jim Allen on June 15, 2022, 10:46:53 am
Early days and we know most of these things don't pan out but an interesting read, although, the media hype around this one is the usual nonsense::)

A study by Dr. Adi Barzel and PhD student Alessio Nehmad used CRISPR gene-editing genetically engineered type B white blood cells (with one coding for Staphylococcus aureus Cas9 (saCas9) and the other for 3BNC117, an anti-HIV bNAb) to produce neutralizing antibodies against HIV in mice and lab dishes.

Another study using an anti-HIV-1 antibody for viral suppression was also recently posted:

Researchers at Tel Aviv University have developed a new and unique treatment method that could possibly be developed into a vaccine or a one-time treatment for HIV/AIDS. The new technique utilizes type B white blood cells that would be genetically engineered inside the patient's body to secrete anti-HIV antibodies in response to the virus.

Canít agree more with media nonsense. They havenít even tested it in vivo
