For the first time, researchers are assessing a pairing of a long-acting antiretroviral and a long-acting antibody.
An $80,000 grant from The Campbell Foundation will help scientist Natalia Freund continue her HIV vaccine studies.
A series of antibody infusions suppressed HIV for up to four months without prompting the virus to develop resistance.
Researchers were also able to make the first-ever estimate of the level of antibodies needed for protection against HIV.
Today, with better understanding of the complex task at hand, cure researchers are investigating multiple avenues and taking the long view.
Researchers were also able to make the first-ever estimate of the level of antibodies needed for protection against the virus.
An antibody treatment plus an immune-stimulating agent delayed viral rebound in primates infected with HIV-like virus.
Periodic infusions of such antibodies may eventually become a new way of treating the virus.
Antibodies protect monkeys against SHIV.
This sets the stage for an early human trial of such antibody injections for use as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) against HIV.
Researchers are trying to harness the power of certain antibodies as long-acting injectable forms of HIV treatment or PrEP.
Three antibodies combined into one protected monkeys against a simian version of HIV, opening the door for human trials.
Researchers have succeeded in immunizing calves and prompting them to produce so-called broadly neutralizing antibodies against HIV.
This success is a major advance for vaccine research and may open the door for other important discoveries aiding vaccine and PrEP research.
