After years of disappointment, researchers have finally found a potential basis for an HIV vaccine. Scientists at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases say they have discovered three human antibodies that neutralize more than 90 percent of the current circulating HIV-1 strains.

“This is significant because we’ve now found antibodies that are good templates for HIV vaccine development,” explains Peter Kwong, chief of structural biology for the institute, and co-author of the study published Thursday in the journal Science. “You can potentially inactivate the virus,” he says.
