Human papillomavirus (HPV) L1 VLP-based vaccines are protective against HPV vaccine-related types; however, the correlates of protection have not been defined. We observed that vaccination with Cervarix™ induced cross-neutralizing antibodies for HPV types for which evidence of vaccine efficacy has been demonstrated (HPV31/45) but not for other types(More)
We observed diminished lymphoproliferation to multiple stimuli in older women with persistent cervical human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Adipokines are a class of inflammatory cytokines that are altered in some persistent infections. The objective was to compare the level of adipokines and inflammatory cytokines in heparinized plasma from women with(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV)-specific antibodies are proposed to be the correlate of protection afforded by HPV L1 virus-like particle (VLP) vaccines. Previous studies have characterized the systemic antibody response to immunization in terms of both the quantity and the ability to neutralize HPV. Here, we have adapted a generalized memory B cell ELISPOT to(More)
Antibody responses against infectious agents are an important component in the prevention of disease. The avidity of antibodies for their antigens relates to their functional efficiency, and is a fundamental aspect in the investigation of humoral responses. Modified ELISAs are used to estimate avidity through the use of chaotropic agents and the measurement(More)
