STUDY: Monkeys Treated With Antibodies Cleared of HIV

STUDY: Monkeys Treated With Antibodies Cleared of HIV

  Here’s another “WOOT!” for the power of antibodies in fighting HIV. Research published this week in Nature Medicine showed that when infant monkeys were given antibodies within 24 hours of being exposed to SHIV, or monkey HIV, they completely cleared the virus. “We knew going into this study that HIV infection spreads very quickly in human infants during mother-to-child transmission,” said Nancy L. Haigwood, senior author of the paper , in a news release . Haigwood is director and senior scientist at Oregon National Primate Research Center at Oregon Health & Science University. “So we knew that we had to treat the infant rhesus macaques quickly but we were not convinced an antibody treatment could completely
