Strong maternal antibodies for HIV could be ineffective for protecting infants from HIV. Maternal Anti-HIV Antibodies Associate with Enhanced Transmission.
Some 25 years after the AIDS epidemic spawned a worldwide search for an effective vaccine against the human immunodeficiency virus, progress in the field seems to have effectively become stalled. The reason? According to new findings, its at least partly due to the fact that our bodys natural HIV antibodies simply dont have a long enough reach to effectively neutralize the viruses they are meant to target.
Scientists at Duke Medicine have found an immunologic mechanism that makes broadly neutralizing antibodies in people who are HIV-1 infected.

The early autologous neutralizing antibody response in human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) subtype C infections is often characterized by high titers, but the response is type specific with little to no cross-neutralizing activity. The specificities of these early neutralizing antibodies are not known; however, the type specificity suggests that they may target the variable regions of the envelope. Here, we show that cross-reactive anti-V3 antibodies developed within 3 to 12 weeks in six individuals but did not mediate autologous neutralization. Using a series of chimeric viruses, we found that antibodies directed at the V1V2, V4, and V5 regions contributed to autologous neutralization in some individuals, with V1V2 playing a more substantial role. However, these antibodies did not account for the total neutralizing capacity of these sera against the early autologous virus. Antibodies directed against the C3-V4 region were involved in autologous neutralization in all four sera studied. ...
A new HIV antigen-antibody combination assay, currently available in Europe, can be useful for high-volume screening to identify individuals with acute HIV infection, who would be missed by traditional HIV antibody tests, according to research presented by Johns Hopkins University, Abbott and others at the 16th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI). Testing for the antigen reduces the window period in which an individual may have been exposed to HIV and have a reactive test result. This means that individuals exposed to HIV may test reactive for the antigen, but may not test reactive to the antibody. In the study by Johns Hopkins and Abbott, blood samples were collected every six months from men who have sex with men (MSM) participating in the US. Behavioral Intervention Study (EXPLORE). The men were HIV antibody negative at enrollment in the study. The previous seronegative specimens from patients who subsequently tested HIV antibody positive were tested individually ...

This experiments aim is to provide students the molecular biology and pathogenesis basics of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).. An HIV test detects HIV infection indirectly using an ELISA test against HIV antibodies in the blood. The test works by taking antibodies from the patients blood and adding them to a microtiter plate coated with HIV antigen. If HIV antibodies are present in the blood, they will bind to the antigens on the plate. This binding is detected with an enzyme-linked secondary antibody that causes a color change upon addition of substrate. In this experiment, students will perform an ELISA test by coating microtiter plate wells with simulated HIV antigen and then test simulated donor serum for anti-HIV antibodies.. , Kit includes: ...
Researchers at The Scripps Research Institute have uncovered the surprising details of how a powerful anti-HIV antibody grabs hold of the virus.
Researchers report a breakthrough in generating powerful antibodies that can neutralize HIV. An HIV infection is really an intensive molecular arms race launched from the minute the virus infects a new host. AIDS progresses not because the body isnt capable of fighting off HIV - it is.

The membrane proximal external region (MPER) of the gp41 subunit of the HIV-1 envelope glycoprotein (Env) contains determinants for broadly neutralizing antibodies and has remained an important focus of vaccine design. However, creating an immunogen that elicits broadly neutralizing antibodies to this region has proven difficult in part due to the relative inaccessibility of the MPER in the native conformation of Env. Here, we describe the antigenicity and immunogenicity of a panel of oligomeric gp41 immunogens designed to model a fusion-intermediate conformation of Env in order to enhance MPER exposure in a relevant conformation. The immunogens contain segments of the gp41 N- and C-heptad repeats to mimic a trapped intermediate, followed by the MPER, with variations that include different N-heptad lengths, insertion of extra epitopes, and varying C-termini. These well-characterized immunogens were evaluated in two different immunization protocols involving gp41 and gp140 proteins, gp41 and gp160 DNA
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) envelope glycoprotein subunits, such as the gp120 exterior glycoprotein, typically elicit antibodies that neutralize T-cell-line-adapted (TCLA), but not primary, clinical isolates of HIV-1. Here we compare the immunogenicity of gp120 and soluble stabilized trimers, which were designed to resemble the functional envelope glycoprotein oligomers of primary and TCLA HIV-1 strains. For both primary and TCLA virus proteins, soluble stabilized trimers generated neutralizing antibody responses more efficiently than gp120 did. Trimers derived from a primary isolate elicited antibodies that neutralized primary and TCLA HIV-1 strains. By contrast, trimers derived from a TCLA isolate generated antibodies that neutralized only the homologous TCLA virus. Thus, soluble stabilized envelope glycoprotein trimers derived from primary HIV-1 isolates represent defined immunogens capable of eliciting neutralizing antibodies that are active against clinically relevant HIV-1 strains.
In this study, we established that after 3 years of infection, the frequency of individuals with neutralization breadth in the CAPRISA cohort was 17.5% (7/40 participants). In some individuals, cross-neutralizing antibodies appeared to target subtype-specific determinants, while in others these antibodies were aimed at more universal epitopes. Heterologous neutralizing antibodies first appeared in some individuals as early as 1 year postinfection but peaked at 4 years, with no increases thereafter. The number of viruses neutralized was associated with the viral load and CD4+ T cell count at set point (6 months postinfection) as well as with the drop in CD4+ T cell count between preinfection and 6 months, suggesting that early events in HIV infection set the stage for the development of breadth.. Broadly cross-neutralizing antibodies were produced in a small proportion of individuals within the CAPRISA cohort after 3 years of follow-up. The frequency and extent of neutralization breadth found in ...

Failure to elicit broadly neutralizing (bNt) antibodies (Abs) against the membrane-proximal external region of HIV-1 gp41 (MPER) reflects the difficulty of mimicking its neutralization-competent structure (NCS). Here, we analyzed MPER antigenicity in the context of the plasma membrane and identified a role for the gp41 transmembrane domain (TM) in exposing the epitopes of three bNt monoclonal Abs (MAbs) (2F5, 4E10, and Z13e1). We transiently expressed DNA constructs encoding gp41 ectodomain fragments fused to either the TM of the platelet-derived growth factor receptor (PDGFR) or the gp41 TM and cytoplasmic tail domain (CT). Constructs encoding the MPER tethered to the gp41 TM followed by a 27-residue CT fragment (MPER-TM1) produced optimal MAb binding. Critical binding residues for the three Nt MAbs were identified using a panel of 24 MPER-TM1 mutants bearing single amino acid substitutions in the MPER; many were previously shown to affect MAb-mediated viral neutralization. Moreover, non-Nt ...

In order to find out if you have been infected with HIV, you need to have a blood test. This blood test, often incorrectly called an AIDS test, is actually a test for HIV antibodies.. Antibodies are produced by your body as a reaction to infection with HIV. An HIV antibody test looks for the presence of these antibodies in your blood. In a standard HIV test, a needle is inserted into a vein in your arm and a sample of your blood is taken. It is sent to a lab to be tested for the presence of these antibodies. After about two weeks, the test results come back to the office where you had the test done.. Rapid HIV tests are available in some regions across the country. The entire process with the new tests, including taking a drop of blood from your finger, along with HIV counselling before and after the test, takes about 20 minutes. The results that you receive from the rapid test are very accurate.. Since HIV antibody tests look for antibodies and not the virus itself, you need to wait to be ...
Early stage of HIV infection that extends approximately 2 to 4 weeks from initial infection until the body produces enough HIV antibodies to be detected by an HIV antibody test. During acute HIV infection, HIV is highly infectious because the virus is multiplying rapidly. The rapid increase in HIV viral load can be detected before HIV antibodies are present.
Induction of broadly neutralizing antibodies (bnAbs) is a major HIV vaccine goal. We hypothesize that consistent bnAb elicitation will require germline-targeting priming immunogens, to activate bnAb precursor B cells, and structure-guided, or reductionist, boosting immunogens, to shepherd antibody maturation toward bnAb development. To test this hypothesis, we have focused our initial immunogen design work on VRC01- and PGT121-class bnAbs, but we are addressing other bnAb classes as well, because an effective vaccine will likely need to induce multiple bnAbs of complementary specificities. Our efforts to design, evaluate and optimize the immunogens and immunization regimens are iterative, collaborative and multi-disciplinary. Overall, the work in progress represents an attempt to introduce a new way to design vaccines.. ...
It is currently accepted that a positive Western blot (WB) HIV antibody test is synonymous with HIV infection and the attendant risk of developing and dying from AIDS. In this communication we present a critical evaluation of the presently available data on HIV isolation and antibody testing. The available evidence indicates that: (a) the antibody tests are not standardised; (b) the antibody tests are not reproducible; (c) the WB proteins (bands) which are considered to be coded by the HIV genome and to be specific to HIV may not be coded by the HIV genome and may in fact represent normal cellular proteins; (d) even if the proteins are specific to HIV, because no gold standard has been used and may not even exist to determine specificity, a positive WB may represent nothing more than cross‑reactivity with the many non‑HIV antibodies present in AIDS patients and those at risk, and thus be unrelated to the presence of HIV. We conclude that the use of the HIV antibody tests as a diagnostic and ...
Rational immunogen design is an increasingly promising approach for development of an effective human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) vaccine. The recent discovery of many new and potent broadly neutralizing antibodies (bnAbs) has helped define conserved sites of vulnerability on the HIV-1 envelope (Env) glycoprotein (gp) complex that mediates viral entry into cells (refs. 1⇓⇓⇓⇓-6 and reviewed in refs. 7⇓⇓⇓-11). Passive immunization studies show that sterilizing immunity can be achieved if sufficient amounts of bnAbs are present before virus challenge in macaques (12⇓⇓⇓-16). Hence, intensive efforts are ongoing to design immunogens capable of re-eliciting these types of bnAbs by vaccination.. The major difficulty in mounting an effective antibody response against HIV-1 resides in the multiple evasion strategies that have evolved in Env. An error-prone reverse transcriptase drives a high degree of Env sequence diversity (17⇓-19). The few conserved regions of Env are ...
HIV tests that detect HIV antigen (p24) and/or HIV antibody are used to screen for and diagnose HIV infections. Early detection and treatment of HIV infection can decrease the risk of progression to AIDS and greatly improve long-term health and survival.

A team of NIH scientists has developed a new tool to identify broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAbs) capable of preventing infection by the majority of HIV strains found around the globe, an advance that could help speed HIV vaccine research. Scientists have long studied HIV-infected individuals whose blood shows powerful neutralization activity because understanding how HIV bNAbs develop and attack the virus can yield clues for HIV vaccine design. But until now, available methods for analyzing blood samples did not easily yield specific information about the HIV bNAbs present or the parts of the virus they targeted. In addition, determining where and how HIV bNAbs bind to the virus has been a laborious process involving several complicated techniques and relatively large quantities of blood from individual donors ...

Although infrequently elicited during the course of natural infection and rarely, if at all, upon conventional vaccination, the membrane-proximal external region (MPER) of the HIV-1 glycoprotein of Mr 41,000 (gp41) envelope protein subunit is the target of several human broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAbs): 4E10, 2F5, Z13e1 and more recently, 10E8. How these bNAbs bind to their lipid-embedded epitopes and mediate antiviral activity is unclear, but this information may offer important insight into a worldwide health imperative. The Reinherz research team, including Gerhard Wagner, Jim Sun, Likai Song and Mikyung Kim, has utilized EPR and NMR techniques to define the manner in which these bNAbs differentially recognize viral membrane-encrypted residues configured within the L-shaped helix-hinge-helix MPER segment. Two distinct modes of antibody-mediated interference of viral infection were identified. 2F5, like 4E10, induces large conformational changes in the MPER relative to the membrane. ...

HIV-1 subtype C is the most common HIV-1 group M subtype in Africa and many parts of Asia. However, to date HIV-1 vaccine candidate immunogens have not induced potent and broadly neutralizing antibodies against subtype C primary isolates. We have used a centralized gene strategy to address HIV-1 diversity, and generated a group M consensus envelope gene with shortened consensus variable loops (CON-S) for comparative studies with wildtype (WT) Env immunogens. Our results indicate that the consensus HIV-1 group M CON-S Env elicited cross-subtype neutralizing antibodies of similar or greater breadth and titer than the WT Envs tested, indicating the utility of a centralized gene strategy. Our study also shows the feasibility of iterative improvements in Env immunogenicity by rational design of centralized genes.
In this animation, professor Cameron Abrams describes a new molecule that hes developed here at Drexel, called DAVEI. DAVEI essentially neutralizes HIV, by tricking the virus into think that its attached to a cell. The virus then spews out its contents, which float off into oblivion, rendering he virus inert.. We hypothesized that an important role of the fusion machinery is to open the viral membrane when triggered, and it follows that a trigger didnt necessarily have to be a doomed cell, Abrams said. So we envisioned particular ways the components of the viral fusion machinery work and designed a molecule that would trigger it prematurely, Abrams said.. The team designed DAVEI from two main ingredients. One piece, called the Membrane Proximal External Region (MPER), is itself a small piece of the fusion machinery and interacts strongly with viral membranes. The other piece, called cyanovirin, binds to the sugar coating of the protein spike. Working together, the MPER and cyanovirin in ...
