Immune Cell "Precursors" to HIV Antibodies Could Lead to Vaccine

Immune Cell "Precursors" to HIV Antibodies Could Lead to Vaccine

“An emerging vaccine strategy involves immunizing people with a series of different engineered HIV proteins as immunogens to teach the immune system to produce broadly neutralizing antibodies (bnAbs) against HIV.”

BREAKING: A Look at HIV "In the Raw" Is One Step Closer to Finding a Vaccine

BREAKING: A Look at HIV "In the Raw" Is One Step Closer to Finding a Vaccine

Thanks to new research, scientists are better able to see how HIV works and are learning more about its weak spots every day.  The virus that is a master of disguise has been photographed in the raw by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) in La Jolla, Calif. In research published today in the journal Science, scientists for the first time have captured an image of the HIV protein that targets and infects cells. The protein is known as the envelope trimer, or more commonly the “Env,” as it is referred to in scientific reports. “This structure has been elusive because it’s fragility typically causes it to fall apart before it can be imaged,” said TSRI Associate Professor Andrew Ward, senior author of the

HIV Vaccine "Essential" to Ending AIDS Pandemic

HIV Vaccine "Essential" to Ending AIDS Pandemic

  Research published this week makes the case that even a “modestly effective” HIV vaccine would be “cost-effective” and “contribute strongly to a sustained HIV/AIDS response. The research was conducted by the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), in partnership with AVAC , which advocates for a vaccine, and Avenir Health , which helps implement costing models for long-term planning for public health events such as vaccine rollouts. The paper appears in the current edition of PLOS ONE. The paper used an epidemiological model to explore how a vaccine might impact low- and middle-income countries in combination with other inventions through 2070. “Assumptions were based on perspectives from research,
