HIV and AIDS cure has been highly researched in the past decades. Despite the lack of definitive output, experts are now gradually unlocking potential cures and preventions, including a successful human trial of HIV neutralizing antibody.

Experts from Rockefeller University in New York and Dr. Florian Klein of University Hospital Cologne and German Center for Infection Research were recently able to identify and test the HIV neutralising effect of a human antibody, known as 10-1074. The said research conducted with antibody 10-1074 aims to identify whether the said neutralising antibodies can be used to treat HIV infection.

"These antibodies are highly potent and are able to effectively neutralize a large number of different HIV strains. Therefore, they play an important role in the quest for and development of an HIV vaccine," Medical Daily quoted researcher Dr. Florian Klein as saying.

In theory, the antibodies will help in luring out viruses that are hiding in human tissues. Thus allowing the human immune system to fully obliterate the said virus. With the recent update on human antibody research, experts are aiming for several HIV-neutralizing antibodies to become more potent in destroying HIV and improve the line of HIV vaccines available.

On the other hand, another promising HIV/AIDS prevention device may soon be released in the market. This tool is seen as an excellent complement to the promising HIV/AIDS cure being developed by Dr. Klein and his team.

The "Medici Drug Delivery System" is a nanotechnology being developed by Boston-based Intarcia Therapeutics Inc. It considered as a medical breakthrough, for its promising effect towards HIV/ AIDS prevention.

The said nano-device aims to help mitigate HIV/AIDS transmission by allowing individuals to stick to a routine. For people wanting to avoid the virus, they would not have to worry much on the acquisition, storage, and even remembering to take prescription drugs daily, according to Huffington Post.

In light of the recent updates in the field of HIV/ AIDS cure and prevention, government agencies are hoping to curb cases of HIV/AIDS.  As of the current UN data, there are 36.7 million people are estimated to be living with HIV globally.
