The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanism of HIV-1 neutralization using monocyte-derived macrophages (MDM) in comparison to PBMC as target cells. For this purpose, we analyzed neutralizing activities of different human polyclonal IgG samples purified from sera of HIV-1-infected individuals using a single cycle infection assay. We found an(More)
The factors present in serum and plasma samples of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients that are responsible for the neutralization of four HIV type 1 (HIV-1) primary isolates in vitro have been analyzed. Purification of immunoglobulins (Ig) by affinity chromatography showed that the activities were mostly attributable to IgG and less(More)
The aim of this study was to characterize the potent nonimmunoglobulin (Ig) inhibitory activity defected in plasma from some HIV-infected, efavirenz (EFV)-treated patients. Concentration of EFV in plasma was measured by HPLC and correlation with reverse transcriptase (RT) inhibition or decrease in virus replication in cellular assays was searched. After(More)
We analyzed the factors influencing the binding of polyclonal immunoglobulin (Ig)G from HIV-infected patients to primary isolates (PI) in capture assays and a potential correlation between this binding and neutralization. The fixation of antibodies (Abs) to viral particles was measured by quantifying the capture of 4 PI by purified IgG immobilized onto a(More)
We investigated the relationship between human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) primary isolate (PI) antibody-mediated neutralization and attachment to primary blood mononuclear cells (PBMC). Incubation of PIs with immunoglobulin G (IgG) purified from infected patients did not inhibit attachment of the viruses with PBMC, but partial to complete(More)
