By Flossie Wong-Staal, Robert C. Gallo

This reference describes the newest advances within the improvement and layout of an HIV preventive vaccine-detailing the pathogenesis and genetic variability of HIV an infection for the development of molecular and healing techniques to minimize the development and transmission of AIDS. With contributions by means of universally well-known specialists within the box, AIDS Vaccine learn discusses

  • major hindrances within the identity of a preventive vaccine
  • the position of innate immunity in administration of HIV an infection
  • the influence of hugely energetic antiretroviral treatment (HAART) on AIDS learn
  • the production of a good mucosal DNA vaccine
  • the impact of the AIDS epidemic on constructing international locations supplying approximately 2000 modern references to facilitate additional learn, AIDS Vaccine study is a well timed guide compatible for immunologists, virologists, pathologists, epidemiologists, pharmacologists, microbiologists, hematologists, hepatologists, AIDS researchers, and upper-level undergraduate and graduate scholars in those disciplines.

    In fact, studies in lymphoid tissue from HIV-infected individuals suggest that the majority of apoptosis occurs in uninfected bystander cells (477–479). Macrophages are efficient mediators of CD4ϩ T-cell bystander apoptosis. HIVinduced upregulation of Fas ligand expression on macrophages and enhanced secretion of TNF-α from these cells appear to be responsible in part for this phenomenon (466,468,480,481). Another mechanism of bystander apoptosis may involve upregulation of CD62L on lymphocytes by HIV (482).

    Increased expression of killer inhibitory receptors may also inhibit CTL activity (236). Another mechanism responsible for the loss of CTL activity is the selective accumulation of CD8ϩDRϩ HIV-specific CTL that lack the interleukin (IL)–2 receptor and are defective in clonogenic potential (237). Finally, the ability of HIV to escape CTL responses by viral mutation or by exhaustion of CTL clones due to high concentration of antigen helps explain the loss of CTL-mediated control over viral replication (238,239).
