We only have to know what is the name of this mAb.

Is this the Ibalizumab ?

I'm not sure of the name of the mAb. I've put a call into Quest, when they call back I'll post about what I find out.

I heard back from Quest.  The name is Pro 140 -- below is the company's website.


You go off your ARVs, get injected once a week for 12 weeks, you go back on meds -- that's the trial. 

It's not an attempt at a cure -- it's an entry inhibitor.  For people who can't take meds orally or are resistant.
