HIV's infection tactics could guide AIDS vaccine, study finds

New research that sheds light on the methods and machinery used by HIV to infect cells provides insight into the tricky virus that potentially could guide the development of a vaccine against the virus that causes AIDS, according to U.S. government and other scientists.

HIV Research Fraud Highlights Scramble for Federal Science Grant Money

In the most brazen case of medical research fraud since the 1974 "patchwork mouse" scandal, scientist Dong-Pyou Han has admitted to faking an HIV vaccine experiment to gain federal funding.

Researcher has a radical idea for a drinkable, probiotic HIV vaccine

Like others before him, Jean-Marie Andrieu believes he may have hit upon the long sought after HIV vaccine. And like numerous other treatments under development, the hitch is that the vaccine has only thus far only shown to be effective in protecting monkeys against the Simian Immunodeficiency Virus or SIV, the monkey equivalent to HIV.

Scientists Question NIH Priorities in Awarding Scarce Government Grants

One scientist says funneling large amounts of money into a single line of research, as in the search for an AIDS vaccine, rewards pet projects and leaves many researchers out in the cold.

New analysis of old HIV vaccines finds potentially protective immune response

Applying the benefit of hindsight, researchers have reanalyzed the findings of two historic pediatric HIV vaccine trials with encouraging results. The vaccines had in fact triggered an antibody response -- now known to be associated with protection in adults -- that was previously unrecognized in the infants studied in the 1990s.

HIV Antibodies Block Infection by Reservoir-Derived Virus in Laboratory Study

The researchers conclude that passive immunotherapy involving bNAbs individually or in combination may control HIV in the absence of antiretroviral therapy. A number of clinical trials are already underway or planned to test this hypothesis.

Mechanism found for development of protective HIV antibodies

Scientists have found an immunologic mechanism that makes broadly neutralizing antibodies in people who are HIV-1 infected. The research team found that two distinct B-cell lineage antibodies teamed up to stimulate the highly sought-after broadly neutralizing antibodies to HIV. The induction of these antibodies that can neutralize a variety of HIV strains is a key strategy for a global vaccine, they say.
