Neutralising antibodies offers hope for HIV vaccine


London: Researchers are in the process of discovering the factors responsible for the production of antibodies that do not just fight one virus strain, but neutralises almost all known virus strains.

This kind of neutralising antibodies are produced by a small number of people who are infected with HIV-1.

Previously, the team led by the University of Zurich (UZH) and University Hospital Zurich (USZ), discovered that the virus load and the diversity of the viruses, the duration of the infection, and the ethnicity of the affected person can all influence the body`s immune response.
