Antibodies, together with viral ‘inducers,’ found to control HIV in mice

Antibodies, together with viral ‘inducers,’ found to control HIV in miceA new strategy devised by researchers at Rockefeller University harnesses the power of broadly neutralizing antibodies, along with a combination of compounds that induce viral transcription, in order to attack latent reservoirs of HIV-infected cells in an approach termed ‘shock and kill.’ More »
