July

"We have been doing immunization experiments in different animal models for years. For this to work so well, quickly and reliably was above and beyond what we expected," says Devin Sok in The Body Pro.

Dennis Burton reacts to another milestone step toward the long-elusive aim of creating a vaccine against HIV; and Mark Feinberg comments on news coming out of the 9th IAS Conference on HIV Science in Paris: The San Diego Union-Tribune

Devin Sok: "The response blew our minds. It was just insane how good it looked, in humans it takes three-to-five years to develop the antibodies we're talking about. Who would have thought cow biology was making a significant contribution to HIV." BBC

Devin Sok reacts to his study showing that with a little cellular engineering, cow-made antibodies could one day be used for short-term protection or to treat HIV-infected individuals: The Scientist
