HIV antibody production

To exploit the immune response and the natural system of neutralizing or killing a virus and preventing infection, researchers develop antigens that stimulate the human body to make the antibodies that are most efficient and effective at achieving the intended goals.

For HIV, though, this has been difficult because the surface antigens of HIV vary broadly among infected individuals. A solution to this problem is thought to exist with broadly neutralizing antibodies, naturally occurring human antibodies against relatively constant antigens on the surface of the HIV virion.

The re:solve AIDS project is raising money to get a promising AIDS vaccine through human testing so that it can be produced and made available to everyone who needs it. http://bit.ly/e4ehI7
