I guess what caught my attention from CROI is the realisation that there is quite a lot of advances on the way in prevention methods for HIV and AIDS, In addition to developing and manufacturing synthetic drugs to treat and prevent HIV, researchers are working on ways to use our own immune systems to fight and prevent HIV infection, through the use of broadly neutralising antibodies which are produced by the immune system of some people living with HIV, Prof Richard from NIAID provided an overview of the recent advances in the field and what antibodies could mean for future vaccine and HIV treatment options.
