HIV is one of the most dangerous infectious diseases. Until now, researchers are always working to develop various types of vaccines to fight HIV.
Efforts to create an HIV vaccine provide the latest facts that research conducted by a team of researchers from the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), Scripps Research Institute and Texas A & M University have shown how they can induce antibodies that can prevent HIV.
The latest study shows, this can be done on cows, where the cow’s immune system can produce strong antibodies inhibit HIV within a matter of weeks. This ability far exceeds the human body which usually takes years.
This provides hope for developing a broadly effective AIDS vaccine in the near future. Unfortunately, until now researchers have not succeeded in inducing the creation of Broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAbs), which are antibodies to HIV in humans through the HIV vaccine.
Meanwhile, cows can rapidly develop Broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAbs) in their blood. The antibody, called NC-Cow1, was very powerful in attacking HIV.
