mum's antibodies

Pamela Bjorkman's Dorothy Hodgkin memorial lecture last night was quite interesting -- I didn't even know (or maybe I forgot) that babies get mum's antibodies from breast milk, let alone how they manage to transfer them from the guts to their blood stream. Intriguing stuff. Plus she's also involved in the project with David Baltimore trying to engineer an efficient immune response against HIV.
