New virus is capable of attacking 99% of HIV strains

New virus is capable of attacking 99% of HIV strains

According to the International Aids Society this is an exciting breakthrough. Human trials will begin in 2018 to see if it is possible to prevent or treat infections. According to Linda-Gail Bekker, the group's president, these antibodies seem to go beyond the natural and may have applications than anticipated.

How the antibody works

Researchers explain that in our body we have antibodies that fight to combat HIV. Unfortunately, this virus has a great ability to modify itself, making it difficult for the immune system to function.

However, some patients are able to develop broad, attacking neutralizing antibodies capable of killing extensions of HIV strains. The scientists' creation combines three broadly neutralizing types of antibodies as a way to treat HIV, or prevent infection. They are more powerful and more efficient than the ones we have in our body.

So far, the experiment was done with 24 monkeys and experts realized that they had an impressive degree of protection.

Who has never been hoarse from cheering for your team or screaming at a show your favorite band Hoarseness is common after excessive vocal exertion. It is a result of edema or redness in the vocal cords and usually improves in a few days. The problem is when that hoarseness persists for months. The voice and therefore human speech is the result of an ingenious process of modulation of the air that comes from the lungs in order to produce complex sound effects.
