The quest for an AIDS vaccine: is the CD8+ T-cell approach feasible?
McMichael A., Hanke T.
The rationale for developing anti-HIV vaccines that stimulate cytotoxic T-lymphocyte responses is given. We argue that such vaccines will work, provided that attention is paid to the development of memory T-cell responses that are strong and preferably activated. Furthermore, the vaccine should match the prevailing virus clade as closely as possible. Vaccines will have to stimulate a wide range of responses, but it is not clear how this can be achieved.
