25 Oct Researchers studying BNAbs, say we will soon know whether we have a vaccine for HIV or not

Global scientists working to harness the potential of Broadly Neutralising Antibodies or BNAbs, say we will soon know whether we have a vaccine for HIV or not. Laboratory tests have shown that BNAbs can prevent many HIV strains from infecting human cells. A minority of people living with HIV naturally produce BNAbs, but usually too late after infection to overcome the virus. In a major trial which results are expected between 2020-2021, researchers are studying in detail BNAbs extracted from HIV positive patients in an effort to develop a vaccine. The discovery of these promising BNABs has dominated talks at the HIV Research for Prevention 2018 Conference in Madrid, in Spain. n One of the speakers on this topic was Dr Jintanat Ananworanich, from the US Military Research Program .... …
