CD103⁺ dermal dendritic cells (dDCs) are a recently described DC subset of the skin shown to be the principal migratory DCs capable of efficiently cross-presenting antigens and activating CD8⁺ T cells. Harnessing their activity would promote vaccine efficacy, but it has been unclear how this can be achieved. We tested a panel of adjuvants for their ability(More)
The World Health Organization’s Global Health Observatory estimates that 78 million people have been infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) during the course of the epidemic, and that 39 million men, women, and children have died.1 Nearly 1 in 20 adults in sub-Saharan Africa are currently living with the infection.
