Action point


Good news in the fight against HIV: A collaboration between researchers at the University of Cape Town and Wits has resulted in an exciting new discovery, published in Nature Medicine.

The paper describes how the evolution of HIV within an infected person can actually drive the generation of antibodies able to neutralise HIV strains from across the world. What’s especially great about the study is that it has important implications for the creation of a protective HIV vaccine.
