Developing an immunotherapy to keep human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) replication suppressed while discontinuing highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) is an important challenge. In the present work, we evaluated in vitro whether dendritic cells (DC) electroporated with gag mRNA can induce HIV-specific responses in T cells from chronically(More)
Recently, it has become obvious that not only CD8 T-cells, but also CD4 T-helper cells are required for the induction of an effective, long-lasting cellular immune response. In view of the clinical importance of cytomegalovirus (CMV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, we developed 2 strategies to simultaneously reactivate viral(More)
BACKGROUND Sub-Saharan African Migrants (SAM) are the second largest group affected by HIV/AIDS in Belgium and the rest of Western Europe. Increasing evidence shows that, more than previously thought, SAM are acquiring HIV in their host countries. This calls for a renewed focus on primary prevention. Yet, knowledge on the magnitude of the HIV epidemic among(More)
INTRODUCTION While sub-Saharan African migrants are the second largest group affected by HIV in Europe, sound HIV prevalence estimates based on representative samples of these heterogeneous communities are lacking. Such data are needed to inform prevention and public health policy. METHODS This community-based, cross-sectional study combined oral fluid(More)
