    There may be a new way to control the AIDS virus.

    FOX News Radio’s Lisa Brady reports:

    Audio clip:

    Two new studies showing promising results in monkeys, injecting them with swarms of germ fighting antibodies. The technique sharply reducing the level of an HIV-cousin in the monkeys’ blood, which researchers say it could be revolutionary if it’s found to work in people. Humans infected with HIV produce anti-bodies naturally, but they generally don’t work. The monkeys were given potent and rare antibodies made in the lab, which appeared to help keep the virus in check, but didn’t cure them.
