RoadAIDS vaccine hopes revived after discovery of HIV weak spot: "Now, thanks to the antibodies, researchers have realised that the trimer is a viral weak spot because it's indispensable to the virus. So unlike many other targets on the virus, it's shared by many, if not all, strains of HIV. 'The key is the trimer,' says Koff. 'Our hypothesis now is that if you bind to the trimer, you neutralise the virus, as that's how it appears on the surface of the virus.' The antibodies are only a starting point, however, and the race is on now to develop synthetic vaccines that have the same shape as the "weak spot", or epitope, so people receiving vaccinations make antibodies that recognise it when the real virus comes along."

  2. federer is not the buff-est player by any stretch, but he has to be very fit. one cannot maintain the sublime quality of his game w/o that. i find his hairy tummy quite sexy. but, he doesn't make me weak like nadal's biceps, calves, thighs, and outrageous ass do.
