JUPITER, FLORIDA- Scientists in Florida say they made a "remarkable new advance" against HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

Researchers at the Scripps Research Institute say they've created a drug candidate that is so potent and universally effective, it might help the body stop or neutralize HIV. The drug blocks HIV in monkeys and that could lead to a vaccine for humans.

The study was published Wednesday in the journal "Nature."
