Broadly cross-reactive HIV-specific cytotoxic T-lymphocytes in highly-exposed persistently seronegative donors.

Abstract:

HIV-specific cytotoxic T-lymphocytes (CTL) are believed to play a key part in the control of virus levels throughout HIV infection. An important goal of a potential prophylactic vaccine against HIV is therefore to elicit a strong CTL response which is broadly cross-reactive against a diverse range of HIV strains. We have detected HIV-specific CTL in two groups of highly-exposed but persistently seronegative female sex workers in Africa which show extensive cross-reactivity between different v...
