I am not sure what vaccine or study you are describing, but there has been some recent studies published in rabbits where researchers described some interesting findings that showed rabbits that were vaccinated with certain vaccine candidates developed broad neutralizing antibodies against many types of HIV. This is an important advance, but more studies are needed, and these vaccines are not yet available for people.
