Neutralization of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 by complement occurs by viral lysis.


The ability of complement to inactivate human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in the presence of specific antibody was evaluated. HIV was treated with complement and/or antibody, and then its titer was determined on the CD4+ H9 cell line. While complement alone had no effect on the HIV titer, complement plus subneutralizing levels of antibody resulted in titer… (More)
