Multipronged HIV vaccine shows promise in monkeys
HIV constantly mutates into many different strains that skillfully kill human cells and cripple the immune system.
Our biologists, immunologists and computer experts developed a “mosaic” vaccine now headed for human trials that stays one step ahead of the virus by creating diverse proteins to attack it—a multipronged approach that strengthens the immune system so it can adapt to the mutating virus.
