HIV-1 Broadly Neutralizing Antibodies: Identification, Development and Vaccine Evaluation


Zaibao Zhang, Qian Guan and Hongyu Yuan

Numerous human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAbs) have been produced and details of their generation, evolution and structure provide a blueprint for effective vaccination. Recent advances in next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies have allowed high-resolution characterization of the antibody repertoire, and have enabled thorough characterization of many HIV-1 bNAbs. These bNAbs identified conserved epitopes that may be used to design new vaccines and provided new tools for prophylaxis and therapy for HIV- 1 disease. In this review, we summarize the advance in HIV-1 bNAbs discovery, maturation and further describe emerging applications in vaccine design.
