Study confirms correlates of risk associated with decrease in HIV transmission

Immune responses that are associated with a decreased risk of infection are called correlates of protection (CoP). Clinical trials that measure vaccine-induced antibody and cell-mediated immune responses help to define CoP to HIV, which are necessary to assess the efficacy of a promising HIV vaccine candidate.A pilot study led by senior authors Georgia Tomaras and Peter Gilbert and first authors Scott Neidich, Youyi Fong and Shuying Li of the NIAID-funded HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN) demonstrated that an increase in three antibody-mediated immune responses (antibody-mediated Fcƴ receptor [FcƴR] recruitment, antibody-dependent cellular phagocytosis [ADCP], and anti-Env IgG3) correlated with a decrease in HIV transmission.
