Dual Antibody Attack Suppresses HIV in Monkeys

This protein-structure model shows how the broadly neutralizing antibodies 10-1074 (blue) and 3BNC117 (red) that were infused into the monkeys each bind to a different site on the SHIV spike (beige and pink), helping prevent the virus from escaping the antibodies.
