Trispecific broadly neutralizing HIV antibodies mediate potent SHIV protection in macaques
The development of an effective AIDS vaccine has been challenging because of viral genetic diversity and the difficulty of generating broadly neutralizing antibodies (bnAbs). We engineered trispecific antibodies (Abs) that allow a single molecule to interact with three independent HIV-1 envelope determinants: the CD4 binding site, the membrane-proximal external region (MPER), and the V1V2 glycan site. Trispecific Abs exhibited higher potency and breadth than any previously described single bnAb, showed pharmacokinetics similar to those of human bnAbs, and conferred complete immunity against a mixture of simian-human immuno...

Single-injection vaccine device still a long way off
Conclusion Injection of a microstructure device that can give time-delayed release of a vaccine or drug could have great potential in medicine. As the researchers noted, the structures are tiny and fully biodegradable, so they shouldn't cause a foreign-body reaction. But they also mentioned the size – the lightweight device could only hold a small amount of solution. However, the researchers suggested that varying the wall thickness to create larger cores could greatly increase the device's capacity. At this stage, the device has only been tested in a single experiment in mice. Further research in mice would be nee...
