         (Jonah Sacha)Aug 1, 2020 - Jun 30, 2025
    A long-acting CCR5 monoclonal antibody for HIV prevention
    Role Description: The administration of antibodies blocking viral receptors has the potential to be effective in protecting the host against infection. The proposed studies are aimed at understanding the potential of a half-life extended antibody against the co-receptor of AIDS viruses, CCR5, in prevention of viral acquisition against challenges via different routes.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
