Ars Technica: new antibody suppresses spread of HIV-1 in infected individuals. The Nature Medicine: this appears to prevent infection of (some subtypes of) HIV-1 in humanised mice and macaques. Lots of potential for combination therapies -- and one subject (not using antiretroviral therapies) maintained viral suppression for over eight weeks post-infusion with this antibody (note that the antibody's halflife is 12.8 days in individuals infected with HIV-1).

(I didn't know about subtypes of HIV, but now I do! ; AVERT.)

A book which fascinated me and taught me a lot I didn't know about HIV: Virus Hunt, by Dorothy Crawford. In case anyone is interested in HIV strains (and what they tell us about the origin of the disease in humans!).
