AIDS Cure Within Antibodies?

The discovery of how a woman's body responded to her HIV infection by making antibodies may hold the clue to a cure for AIDS, study finds

The discovery of how a woman's body responded to her HIV infection by making antibodies may hold the clue to a cure for AIDS.

In a study that was published in the scientific journal, Nature, South African and American researchers describe how the research team found and identified these antibodies in her blood, and then duplicated them by cloning the antibodies in a laboratory.

Salim Abdool Karim, co-author and head of the Centre for the AIDS Programme of Research in South Africa, states that the potent antibodies take years to develop as they constantly evolve, the woman’s antibodies were discovered three years after she got infected and were traced backwards to outline how they changed in time.
