Antibody masking renders HIV-1 resistant to cationic membrane filtration through alteration of its electrostatic characteristics.

Abstract

Previously, it was demonstrated that any human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) strain proliferating in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) in vitro, and resuspended in seronegative plasma, could be captured efficiently (mean > 95%) by a porous polypropylene (PP) membrane modified cationically. We investigated if this cationic membrane could… (More)
