  • Monoclonal Antibody Cures Marburg Infection in Primate Model
    Scientists funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have found that an experimental treatment cured 100 percent of guinea pigs and rhesus monkeys in late stages of infection with lethal levels of Marburg and Ravn viruses, relatives of the Ebola virus. Although the ...More

  • NIH Research Helps Explain How Antibody Treatment Led to Lasting HIV-Like Virus Remission
    Scientists at the National Institutes of Health have found that the presence of the protein alpha-4 beta-7 integrin on the surface of HIV and its monkey equivalent -- simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) --may help explain why an antibody protected monkeys from SIV in ...More
