CD8+ T cell responses to human immunodeficiency viruses type 2 (HIV-2) and type 1 (HIV-1) gag proteins are distinguishable by magnitude and breadth but not cellular phenotype.

Abstract:

The mechanisms underlying the relatively slow progression of human immunodeficiency virus type 2 (HIV-2) compared with HIV-1 infection are undefined and could be a result of more effective immune responses. We used HIV-2 and HIV-1 IFN-gamma enzyme-linked immunospot assays to evaluate CD8(+) T cell responses in antiretroviral-naive HIV-2- ('HIV-2(+)') and HIV-1-infected ('HIV-1(+)') individuals. Gag-specific responses were detected in the majority of HIV-2(+) and HIV-1(+) subjects. Overlapping...
