Single Antibody Injection Rids Infant Monkeys of Simian HIV
« on: January 27, 2020, 12:39:13 pm »
A single injection of a pair of antibodies given 30 hours after infection with SHIV, a hybrid simian-human form of HIV, can rid infant monkeys of the virus. This finding could lead to a simple and highly effective prophylactic that infants born to HIV-positive mothers could receive promptly after birth to prevent mother-to-child transmission of the virus.

Taking HIV treatment during pregnancy is highly effective at preventing transmission of the virus to infants, so the need for postpartum prophylactics is great if the HIV-positive mother was not on antiretrovirals (ARVs) prior to giving birth.
