Abstract (English)

HIV`s vast genetic diversity has prevented the success of common vaccine approaches. Currently, HIV-1 vaccine development focuses on the induction of broadly neutralizing antibodies (bnAbs), which target various epitopes on the trimeric envelope (Env) protein. The most potent bnAbs known today are able to neutralize more than 90 % of circulating virus strains; however, their development requires ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Aufgrund der enorm hohen genetischen Variabilität von HIV-1 sind konventionelle Impfstoffstrategien bislang gescheitert. Heute fokussiert sich die HIV-1 Vakzineentwicklung vor allem auf die Induktion breitneutralisierender Antikörper (bnAbs), die sich gegen verschiedene Epitope auf dem trimeren Oberflächenprotein Envelope (Env) richten. Die Besten heute bekannten bnAbs können über 90 % der ...
