The past few years have witnessed a substantial advance in identifying novel antibodies that target conserved structural elements on influenza hemagglutinin, the receptor-binding site and the stem domain, thus revived the hope for universal antibody. This chapter reviews the isolation of stem-specific bnAbs, the structural basis of bnAb-mediated virus neutralization, and the novel strategies for eliciting bnAbs in vivo read more ...
