The group knew that some patients infected with HIV-1 developed what are known as 'broadly neutralizing antibodies,' or bnAbs, that can protect against a wide variety of HIV-1 strains by recognizing a protein on the surface of the virus called Env.

Vaccine researchers have identified several of these broadly neutralizing antibodies from long-term HIV-positive survivors, harvesting antibody-producing B cells from blood samples and then sifting through them to identify those that produce antibodies capable of neutralizing multiple strains of HIV.
The researchers also discovered another antibody attaching to and neutralizing an HIV.
In this study, we focused on the possibility that presence or absence of heterotypic neutralizing antibodies might contribute to severity of secondary DENV-2 infections.
L-55RII exhibits five to six times greater acid neutralizing capacity than calcium stearate and can be used in the manufacture of polyolefins such as PP and PE, engineering plastics such as ABS, PVC additive packages, halogen-containing flame-retardant compositions, and pigment/color concentrates.

The most common are neutralizing amines: volatile, nitrogen-bearing compounds that condense with the steam, neutralize any acids present, and raise the condensate pH sufficiently to reduce corrosion.
The vaccinated animals had no neutralizing antibodies before infection--suggesting that the cellular immune responses, not the antibodies, were important for initial protection; but neutralizing antibodies did develop by day 21 after infection, so they might also have helped control the virus.
