Summary

In this study, the investigators evaluated a therapeutic HIV-1 DNA vaccine administered with a novel topical application method to 12 chronically HIV-infected cART treated patients. The HIV DNA plasmids used in this study encode for envelope gp160 of HIV-1 subtypes A, B and C, rev B, Gag A and B and reverse transcriptase (RT) B. The patients were randomly assigned to three groups; group 1 (n=4) were immunized six times with 0.4 mg of HIV DNA plasmids topically, group 2 (n=4) were immunized six times with 0.4 mg of HIV DNA plasmids topically and treated with 500 mg of hydroxyurea daily until visit 10, group 3 (n=4) four patients received placebo. The immunization was performed during three cycles of 7 weeks of cART followed by four weeks of therapy interruption. After the last cycle of cART the patients were maintained on a definitive treatment interruption until CD4+ T cell counts dropped below 350/ mm3 at two time points. Cellular and humoral immune responses, viral load and CD4+ T a cell count was analysed throughout the study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A combined vaccine used to prevent infection with diphtheria and tetanus toxoid. This is used in place of DTP vaccine (DIPHTHERIA-TETANUS-PERTUSSIS VACCINE) when PERTUSSIS VACCINE is contraindicated.

A live vaccine containing attenuated poliovirus, types I, II, and III, grown in monkey kidney cell tissue culture, used for routine immunization of children against polio. This vaccine induces long-lasting intestinal and humoral immunity. Killed vaccine induces only humoral immunity. Oral poliovirus vaccine should not be administered to immunocompromised individuals or their household contacts. (Dorland, 28th ed)

A bacterial vaccine for the prevention of brucellosis in man and animal. Brucella abortus vaccine is used for the immunization of cattle, sheep, and goats.

A live attenuated virus vaccine of chick embryo origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of adolescents and adults who have not had mumps or been immunized with live mumps vaccine. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine.

A live attenuated virus vaccine of chick embryo origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of adolescents and adults who have not had measles or been immunized with live measles vaccine and have no serum antibodies against measles. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
