Biologists Deliver Neutralizing Antibodies that Protect Against HIV Infection in Mice (11/30/11)
Caltech biologists David Baltimore and Alejandro Balazs discuss their novel approach to HIV prevention: a delivery method for neutralizing antibodies, which protect against HIV infection in mice.
An illustration shows the crystal structure of the adeno-associated virus used to deliver broadly neutralizing antibodies as Vectored ImmunoProphylaxis against HIV.
