An important aspect of vaccine development involves delivery of antigens to antigen-presenting cells for the induction of potent antigen-specific T lymphocyte responses. We investigated the effect of a cationic liposome, lipofectin, on delivery of whole proteins to human dendritic cells (DCs)...
In this study we have evaluated the concordance between serology, using five commercially available antibody assays designed to discriminate between HIV-1 and HIV-2, and the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for the detection of HIV-1 and HIV-2 dual infection. Thirty-seven HIV-1 and HIV-2 dually...
Development of an effective vaccine against HIV-1 will likely require the induction of a broad array of immune responses, including virus-specific CTLs and neutralizing antibodies. One promising vaccine approach involves live recombinant canarypox (CP)-based vectors (ALVAC) containing multiple...
We compared antibody responses to various structural and accessory gene products of HIV-1 between longterm nonprogressors and patients who have progressed to AIDS. On the basis of our results, we performed epitope mapping of the Nef protein and identified a novel epitope. This novel epitope of...
Macrophages are a preferred target for sexually transmitted human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) isolates that use CCR5 as a coreceptor in combination with CD4. To assess whether the susceptibility of MDMs to infection by an R5 isolate was influenced by CD4 and/or CCR5 expression, levels...
The phenotype of circulating CD8+ T lymphocytes and its association with plasma HIV-1 RNA were analyzed in 34 HIV-1-infected subjects, who were treated with saquinavir, ritonavir, and two nucleoside analogs (HAART) for 1 year. Four-color flow cytometry was applied to measure the expression of...
In 1995, 53 blood samples from Muslim patients with AIDS, or who were thought to have AIDS, were collected in the main hospitals of Adamaoua Province, in the northern part of Cameroon. The variable env C2V3 region of HIV-1 was amplified by nested PCR and phylogenetically analyzed. The results...
The capacity of a panel of HIV-1 isolates to infect primary mixed fetal brain cell cultures was estimated and their sensitivity to inhibition by a range of coreceptor ligands assessed. Our results show that (1) HIV-1 strains that predominantly use CCR5 or only CXCR4 are able to infect microglia...
