Standing guard at the mucosa.

Abstract

Most successful vaccines elicit antibodies that protect against infection. In this issue of Immunity, Bomsel et al. (2011) show in the rhesus macaque model that vaccine-induced mucosal antibodies, rather than circulating neutralizing antibodies, may be critical components for protective immunity against HIV-1.
