HIV AIDS TSRI eOD-GT8 60mer

The Scientists from different research institutions led by the Scripps Research Institute (TSRI), have discovered that immunisation of a mouse’s body with a protein nanoparticle immunogen called eOD-GT8 60mer produces antibody “precursors” with some of the traits necessary to recognize and block HIV infection.The nanoparticle eOD-GT8 60mer could be one of the several immunogens that train our body to fight HIV.

Till now, scientists have not been able to find a vaccine to fight the Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) which causes AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome). This is because the normal immunization process used against other diseases does not work against HIV.
