As stated by the scientists of the University of Melbourne, obtained from cow's milk antibodies protect against HIV. Conducted scientific experiments proved that the introduction of HIV proteins pregnant cows caused in their body active antibody production, the collection of which is possible with the colostrum.
Also in laboratory conditions was the binding of these antibodies to HIV, impeding the penetration of the virus in human cells. According to experts, from one cow can get almost a kilogram of antibodies.
At the same time, researchers have not examined how safe their application to the human body. Scientists plan to create a cream or gel with such antibodies, which can be entered vaginally 12, at most 24 hours before sexual contact. The application is convenient for women wishing to become pregnant, but fear of infection.
