New Insights Into HIV Immunity Suggest Alternative Approach to Vaccines

.... "A light went on when I saw that the rare human monoclonal antibodies had physical characteristics very similar to autoantibodies found in autoimmune disease ?in other words, to the antibodies the normal immune system does not allow to be made," Haynes said. The results provide a new goal for future HIV res...
