In HIV-1-infected patients, a strong humoral immune response against HIV-1 Tat protein is inversely correlated to peripheral blood viral load and, in particular, a high level of antibody against Tat peptides containing amino acid residues 6-14 (Tat(6-14)), 36-50 (Tat(36-50)) and 46-60 (Tat(46-60)) is associated with an undetectable plasma viral load. These findings may help to tailor anti-HIV-1 Tat-containing vaccines.

Antibodies against full-length Tat protein and some low-molecular-weight Tat-peptides correlate with low or undetectable viral load in HIV-1 seropositive patients

Abstract

In HIV-1-infected patients, a strong humoral immune response against HIV-1 Tat protein is inversely correlated to peripheral blood viral load and, in particular, a high level of antibody against Tat peptides containing amino acid residues 6-14 (Tat(6-14)), 36-50 (Tat(36-50)) and 46-60 (Tat(46-60)) is associated with an undetectable plasma viral load. These findings may help to tailor anti-HIV-1 Tat-containing vaccines.
