|Is there a particular name for that abzyme that they engineered? Supposedly, they have to designate a name for it just like in plasmids e.g. pBR322. Pls. include it in the article so we can refer to it specifically. Thanks a lot. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 03:43, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
Just a few minor comments. The first author of the paper referred to in this article is Stephanie Planque, and she is not mentioned (although Sudhir Paul, Ph.D,and Yasuhiro Nishiyama, Ph.D are).
Also, my reading of the article mentioned (but not referenced) in Autoimmunity Reviews, the abzyme in question was not engineered, but isolated from lupus patients. In fact, the article mentions tat the isolated abzymes reduce gp120 more effectively than monclonal antibodies.

Suggest removing "Potential HIV treatment" section
This section tells the reader nothing about abzymes generally, and may raise false hopes for a new HIV treatment. Also the section was added by an anonymous editor who may be one of the researchers using Wikipedia to publicize his own work. And, one of the references in the section is to a primary source.
