HIV infection presents a major community health hazard, partially because the HIV virus is capable of evading antiretroviral therapies. Most anti-HIV drugs were intended to target virus-encoded mechanisms; however, some host-encoded molecules comparatively execute a vital role in the life cycle of virus. Thus, these might be considered as target sites for antiviral agents. TSG101 is important among these antiviral therapies because, as a cytoplasmic molecule, it facilitates viral budding and release. In this review, HIV-infected cells have TSG101 on their surface and thus can be used in antibody-based therapies. The development of a monoclonal antibody CB8-2 lessens the assembly of viruses from infected cells. This mechanism represents the potential use of TSG101-directed antibodies to fight against AIDS.
