Broadly neutralizing antibody treatment may target viral reservoir in monkeys
After receiving a course of antiretroviral therapy for their HIV-like infection, half of a group of monkeys infused with a broadly neutralizing antibody to HIV paired with an immune stimulatory compound suppressed the virus for over 4 months without additional treatment, according to NIAID-supported scientists.

Changing size of neurons could shed light on new treatments for motor neurone disease
New research published in The Journal of Physiology improves our understanding of how motor nerve cells (neurons) respond to motor neurone disease, which could help us identify new treatment options.

Comparison shows value of DNA barcoding in selecting nanoparticles
The first direct comparison of in vitro and in vivo screening techniques for identifying nanoparticles that may be used to transport therapeutic molecules into cells shows that testing in lab dishes isn't much help in predicting which nanoparticles will successfully enter the cells of living animals.
