Definition of antibody (Ab) functions capable of preventing mucosal HIV transmission may be critical to both effective vaccine development and the prophylactic use of monoclonal Abs. Although direct antibody-mediated neutralization is highly effective against cell-free virus, increasing evidence suggests an important role for immunoglobulin G (IgG) Fcγ(More)
Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, with its cohort of life-threatening complications, affects more than 200 million persons worldwide and has a prevalence of more than 10% in certain countries. Preventive and therapeutic vaccines against HCV are thus much needed. Neutralizing antibodies (NAbs) are the foundation for successful disease prevention for(More)
We evaluated the immunogenicity of a prime/boost vaccine strategy combining 5 lipopeptides (HIV-Lipo-5) and a recombinant modified vaccinia virus Ankara (rMVA-HIV) in cynomolgus macaques. Both of these vaccine components deliver HIV LAI Gag, Pol, and Nef antigens. Systemic and local safety was excellent in all groups. Immunization with HIV-Lipo-5 alone(More)
Dendritic cells (DCs) are professional antigen-presenting cells whose functions are dependent on their degree of differentiation. In their immature state, DCs capture pathogens and migrate to the lymph nodes. During this process, DCs become resident mature cells specialized in antigen presentation. DCs are characterized by a highly limiting environment for(More)
Background Fc-mediated inhibitory activity of neutralizing antibodies has been shown to participate in HIV protection (Hessell et al. 2007). In addition, a non-neutralizing antibody F240 was found to partially protect macaques from SHIV vaginal transmission (Moore et al., 2011). However, mechanisms involved in this protection need further investigations. In(More)
Methods We engineered an anti-human DCIR recombinant antibody cross-reacting with the cynomolgus macaque receptor fused via the heavy chain C-terminus to HIV-1 Gagp24 protein (anti-DCIR.Gagp24). HIV patient PBMC cultures were incubated with anti-DCIR and control hIgG4.Gagp24 fusion proteins. After 10 days, the total T cells were challenged with HIV Gagp24(More)
