Kymouse™ successfully demonstrates steps to developing HIV vaccine

Kymab, The Scripps Research Institute and International AIDS Vaccine Initiative collaboration improves discovery and testing of promising HIV vaccine strategies

Kymab, the Cambridge-based antibodies-to-medicines company, announces today a publication of a new approach to developing a human vaccine against HIV in the internationally renowned scientific journal Science. The publication presents new findings from a collaboration between researchers at Kymab, The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) of San Diego, California, and the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI). HIV is one of the most intransigent targets for vaccine development, and no effective vaccine has been developed in thirty years of global research. The paper is entitled “Priming HIV-1 broadly neutralizing antibody precursors in human Ig loci transgenic mice”.
