Discovery of an HIV reservoir marker: New avenue toward eliminating the virus

French researchers have identified a marker that makes it possible to differentiate "dormant" HIV-infected cells from healthy cells. This discovery will make it possible to isolate and analyze reservoir cells…

Monkeys suppress HIV-like virus for extended period after dual-antibody treatment

Giving monkeys two powerful anti-HIV antibodies immediately after infection with an HIV-like virus enabled the immune systems of some of the animals to control the virus long after the antibodies…

Powerful RNA-based technology could help shape the future of therapeutic antibodies

Pre-clinical study from Penn demonstrates protection against HIV PHILADELPHIA—Using antibodies to treat disease has been one of the great success stories of early 21st-century medicine. Already five of the ten…
