Prime-boost immunization generates a high frequency, high-avidity CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocyte population
Development and expansion of high-avidity T cell populations may be important for the success of immunization strategies against HIV and other pathogens that have presented major problems for vaccine development. We have used tetrameric-MHC complexes ex vivo and lytic assays to show that 'prime-boost' immunization with DNA vaccines and recombinant poxvirus vectors generates high frequencies of cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) that recognize target cells expressing very low levels of specific...[Show more]
