OBJECTIVES: HIV-1-specific CD8 T cells are considered to be critical in anti-HIV responses. It is important to quantify these cells and to determine their antigenic targets. Here quantification of interferon (IFN)-gamma secreting, virus-specific cells was achieved with an enzyme linked immuno spot (ELISPOT) assay. METHODS: Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were infected with recombinant vaccinia vectors expressing HIV-1 genes (gag, pol, env or nef) and added to wells precoated with an...Expand abstract
