Jamie Scott, a Simon Fraser University professor and Canada Research Chair in molecular immunity, and three international collaborators are getting a hefty financial boost in their efforts to develop an effective HIV/AIDS vaccine.. The United States National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded the four researchers $2.7 million to help them improve the effectiveness of a DNA-based vaccine that Marinieve Montero first conceived of eight years ago. Montero was a student of Scotts whose work was also funded by the NIH, the U.S.s largest government-funded medical research agency.. Scotts current collaborators are at the University of the Basque Country, the University of Massachusetts School of Medicine and the University of California, San Francisco.. The researchers will use their new funding to strengthen a vaccine theyve made from a DNA fragment taken from the HIV genome. The fragment encodes something that is highly prized in HIV/AIDS vaccine research. Called the MPER, its a region of ...

The massive growth in global health research in past decades has posed many challenges for its effective ethical oversight, not least of which is how best to provide effective protection of research participants. The extent of the HIV epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa in particular makes research into prevention technologies for HIV, including HIV vaccine research, a global priority. However, the need for vaccine research must be considered in conjunction with the individuals right to informed consent, which is based on the principle of respect for autonomy. One of the primary human rights violations likely to occur in the context of HIV vaccine research is that potential research participants may not fully understand what participation in research studies entails. People who elect to enrol in HIV vaccine trials are required to understand both the potential negative effects of participation (eg, discrimination) as well as complex scientific concepts such as randomisation and prophylaxis in order ...

Background With the persistent challenges towards controlling the HIV epidemic, there is an ongoing need for research into HIV vaccines and drugs. Sub-Saharan African countries - worst affected by the HIV pandemic - have participated in the conduct of clinical trials for HIV vaccines. In Kenya, the Kenya AIDS Vaccine Initiative (KAVI) at the University of Nairobi has conducted HIV vaccine clinical trials since 2001. Methodology Participants were recruited after an extensive informed consent process followed by screening to determine eligibility. Screening included an assessment of risk behavior, medical history and physical examination, and if clinically healthy, laboratory testing. In the absence of locally derived laboratory reference ranges, the ranges used in these trials were derived from populations in the West. Principal findings Two hundred eighty-one participants were screened between 2003 and 2006 for two clinical trials. Of these, 167 (59.4%) met the inclusion/exclusion criteria. Overall,

To augment the immune responses elicited by these and other vaccines, scientists use immunologic adjuvants. Currently, only one adjuvant -- alum, first discovered in 1926 -- is incorporated into vaccines licensed for human use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). An adjuvant may work well with one experimental vaccine and not another. Therefore, the FDA licenses the vaccine formulation, or the antigen-adjuvant combination, rather than the adjuvant alone. Experimental adjuvants can increase the type, strength and durability of immune responses evoked by an experimental vaccine. For example, some vaccine antigen/adjuvant combinations can induce cell-mediated immune responses, even if the vaccine antigen by itself does not. Some adjuvants also stimulate mucosal immunity. Alum primarily increases the strength of antibody responses generated by the vaccine antigen. Because of its limited activity, other adjuvants may be better suited for the newer candidate HIV vaccines ...

Designing an effective HIV/AIDS vaccine is something of a paradox: a good vaccine would be safe and look enough like HIV to kick-start the immune system into neutralizing the virus - but the problem is that this is exactly what the human immune system has trouble doing even when its exposed to the real thing.. Now a team of researchers led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, CA has developed a strategy for inducing a key part of an effective immune response to HIV. By tracing the evolution of HIV-recognizing molecules called antibodies taken from the blood of rare individuals whose immune systems are naturally able to target and neutralize the virus, they may have found a way to replicate this for everybody.. At a talk next week at the American Crystallographic Association meeting in Hawaii, the team will present multiple crystal structures, which like detailed architectural blueprints show how the virus interacts with components of the immune system. Examining these ...

Researchers hope that this oral vaccine will create a more robust immune response against HIV. "We think that an oral approach may be the way to create a more effective vaccine and Im sure that most people would rather get a vaccine in a pill rather than by yet another shot," said Michael C. Keefer, M.D., professor of Medicine and director of the Universitys NIH-supported HIV Vaccine Trials Unit. John J. Treanor, M.D., professor of Medicine and chief of Infectious Diseases at UR Medicines Strong Memorial Hospital is leading the study with support from Keefer, who has more than 20 years of experience in the preventive HIV vaccine field. They will monitor how peoples immune systems respond to the vaccine and if the vaccine causes any symptoms. The University has a long track record of conducting detailed studies of HIV vaccines, but Keefer says that this is the first time an oral vaccine has been tested in Rochester. Though the research is in its early stages, he believes the information ...

A clinical trial testing a candidate HIV vaccine known as the STEP study was halted in September 2007 after interim analysis indicated that the vaccine did not work. Moreover, subsequent analyses indicated that the vaccine made some individuals more susceptible to HIV, in particular individuals who had pre-existing immune effectors (antibodies) that recognized a component of the vaccine (adenovirus serotype 5 [Ad5]).

TY - CHAP. T1 - Challenges in designing HIV env immunogens for developing a vaccine. AU - Srivastava, Indresh K.. AU - Holland Cheng, R.. PY - 2008/1/1. Y1 - 2008/1/1. N2 - HIV continues to be a major health problem worldwide; however, the situation is particularly serious in Asian and Sub-Saharan countries. Development of an effective HIV vaccine could help to reduce the severity of the disease and prevent infection. Over the last two decades significant efforts have been made toward inducing potent humoral and cellular immune responses by vaccination; however, it appears that either antibodies or CTL may not be sufficient alone for the induction of sterilizing immunity or long-term control of viral replication. Therefore, it is generally believed that both humoral and cellular responses will be needed for an effective HIV vaccine. It has been shown in passive transfer experiments using broadly neutralizing monoclonal antibodies (mAb) such as b12, 2F5, and 2G12 that these mAbs either alone or ...

BACKGROUND RV144 is the only preventive HIV vaccine regimen demonstrating efficacy in humans. Attempting to build upon RV144 immune responses, we conducted a phase 1, multicenter, randomized, double-blind trial to assess the safety and immunogenicity of regimens substituting the DNA-HIV-PT123 (DNA) vaccine for ALVAC-HIV in different sequences or combinations with AIDSVAX B/E (protein).METHODS One hundred and four HIV-uninfected participants were randomized to 4 treatment groups (T1, T2, T3, and T4) and received intramuscular injections at 0, 1, 3, and 6 months (M): T1 received protein at M0 and M1 and DNA at M3 and M6; T2 received DNA at M0 and M1 and protein at M3 and M6; T3 received DNA at M0, M1, M3, and M6 with protein coadministered at M3 and M6; and T4 received protein and DNA coadministered at each vaccination visit.RESULTS All regimens were well tolerated.

Recently, the Merck pharmaceutical company reported that its experimental HIV vaccine raised the rate of HIV infection among people who got the trial vaccine. Yes, you read that right. It was worse than nothing. This vaccine was composed of a few HIV proteins strapped onto an adenovirus, which causes colds. Among people with good immunity to this common cold virus, about 80% of the population, it increased the chances of contracting HIV. The saddest part is that this is not surprising. Virologists have long been skeptical about the possibility of an effective HIV vaccine. HIV infects the very immune cells that you stimulate to defend your body against it. Stimulating these cells increases the rate at which HIV can infect those cells and the rate of HIV replication in these cells. Thus, an HIV vaccine can make it more likely that you’ll get AIDS, and you might get it sooner and worse than if you weren’t immunized. So far, no one has found the Holy Grail of HIV vaccines: a ...

Any future HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) vaccine will rely on inducing either antibodies that neutralize the virus, or cell-mediated immunity by cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs). The former initiative is being frustrated by the ability of the virus to mutate and escape antibody binding. Although a related problem of viral escape is faced by CTLs, it does appear that a robust cell-mediated immune response can lower the levels of replicating virus after acute infection, and this set-point is known to affect the course of subsequent infection and progression to AIDS. Using infection of monkeys with the pathogenic SIV, the simian cousin of HIV, Letvin et al. (p. 1530) offer direct experimental evidence that generation of a robust cellular response by vaccination corresponds with increased survival. This finding also correlated with the persistence of high numbers of so-called central memory T cells and suggests that finding ways of preserving these important lymphocytes may help in improving ...

Nearly 37 million people are living with HIV around the world. In the United States, 1.2 million people are living with HIV, of whom 13 percent are unaware of their diagnosis. Although progress has been made in the global fight against HIV/AIDS, the epidemic continues in the United States and the international community. Globally, AIDS-related deaths have dropped by 45 percent since their peak in 2004. Yet the rate of HIV transmission remains unacceptably high, with 2.1 million new infections occurring worldwide in 2015 alone. Source: NIH-NIAID. ...
An HIV vaccine is a vaccine which would either protect individuals who do not have HIV from contracting that virus, or otherwise may have a therapeutic effect for persons who have or later contract HIV/AIDS. Currently, there is no effective HIV vaccine but many research projects managing clinical trials seek to create one. There is evidence that a vaccine may be possible. Preventative medications such as antiretroviral treatments have been put into use to help prevent infection, but do not work as well as a vaccine would. Work with monoclonal antibodies (MAb) has shown or proven that the human body can defend itself against HIV, and certain individuals remain asymptomatic for decades after HIV infection. Potential candidates for antibodies and early stage results from clinical trials have been announced. One HIV vaccine candidate which showed some efficacy was studied in RV 144, which was a trial in Thailand beginning in 2003 and first reporting a positive result in 2009. Many trials have shown ...

A new study gives a much-needed booster shot to the beleaguered AIDS vaccine field. The experiment, led by immunologist and pathologist Louis Picker of the Oregon Health & Science University in Beaverton, showed that an unusual approach to vaccinating against SIV (a simian cousin of HIV) protected 12 of 24 monkeys from a "challenge" with a particularly virulent strain of that virus. Specifically, all monkeys became infected, but in half of the animals, their immune systems drove the virus down to undetectable levels for more than a year. "Its the best result Ive seen against the worst SIV known," says the University of Wisconsins David Watkins, an immunologist who tests AIDS vaccines in monkeys and was not involved with the work. "Im very excited by this approach.". The vaccine contains SIV genes stitched into cytomegalovirus (CMV), a herpesvirus that harmlessly infects many humans and serves as the delivery vehicle, or vector, for the AIDS virus proteins. Typically, AIDS vaccines use ...
A large-scale phase IIb clinical trial of a candidate HIV vaccine has begun in South Africa. This vaccine has shown promise in smaller U.S. studies. The trial involves 3,000 HIV-negative men and women, making it the largest African HIV vaccine trial to date. The study vaccine is provided by Merck & Co., Inc. and contains copies of only three HIV genes, not the entire virus, so it is impossible for trial volunteers to become infected from the vaccine. The South African trial is called Phambili (HVTN 503), which literally means "moving forward." It is designed to provide preliminary information on vaccine efficacy and thus enable researchers to decide whether or not to conduct a larger phase III efficacy trial that could lead to licensure. In smaller trials, the vaccine was found to be safe and to stimulate cellular immune responses against HIV in more than half of the volunteers. The primary objectives of HVTN 503 are to determine whether the candidate vaccine can prevent HIV infection or, in ...
In the past 30 years, HIV vaccine studies on traditional CD8+ T cell-targeted HIV vaccines were frustrated by the ineffectiveness of mediating immediate vaccinal interception upon infection acquisition prior to the explosive viral amplification. As the most important lesson of past HIV vaccine researches, the first hours to days immediately after viral infection might be the only vulnerable time period for immunologic interceptions.[1, 2] With this regard, immunologists started a novel research on employing Cytomegelovirus (CMV) as vaccine vector in early 2000s, to exploit CMV vectors unique ability on eliciting and maintaining abundant functional T cell responses at all potential HIV infection sites.[3-6] Recent CMV-based vaccine research, demonstrated by Louis Picker and colleagues, with statistical support by Dr. Edlefsen, manifests a remarkable infection control and clearance on ~50% of HIV-acquired rhesus macaques (RM) vaccinated by Simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) inserted rhesus ...
