Human mode of responding to HIV vaccine is conserved from monkeys

In a study published in the journal Immunity, the researchers report that an investigational vaccine that elicited an immune response in an estimated 31 percent of participants was able to do so because of a particular antibody gene motif that is shared with rhesus macaques and other primates. "It turns out that this antibody response that can recognize this part of the HIV envelope is encoded in the genes present throughout primate development," said lead author Kevin Wiehe, Ph.D. "We found it in almost every primate species we studied." The drawback, however, is that this ancient response might compete with the response aimed at by experimental HIV vaccines - novel, broadly neutralising antibodies that can defuse the virus regardless of how it mutates.
