In the first of two passive transfer experiments, three groups of four macaques were injected intraperitoneally with a normal serum pool, an immune serum pool (pool 1) collected 132-172 weeks postinfection with the 11/88 pool of SIVmac251, or with a pool of four neutralizing monoclonal antibodies...
Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6), a T lymphotropic herpesvirus, has been suggested as a potential cofactor in the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Previous studies indicate that HHV-6 has a restricted range of susceptible species. In this study, we tested the in vitro susceptibility to HHV-6...
We previously demonstrated that progeny virions are not produced after infection of adult quiescent peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) by human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1). Molecular analysis revealed that the nonproductive nature of this infection is due to failure to complete reverse...
Precise epitope mapping and characterization is important for development of a subunit vaccine. To identify epitopes in the principal neutralizing determinant (PND) within the V3 loop of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), sera were screened in a direct ELISA assay with a coating peptide...
