Mucosal and plasma IgA from HIV-exposed seronegative individuals neutralize a primary HIV-1 isolate.
(University of Nairobi, 2000)
Abstract OBJECTIVE: To characterize functional properties of HIV-specific IgA in samples representing both systemic and mucosal compartments of HIV-1 highly exposed persistently seronegative (HEPS) individuals. METH ...
HIV-1 neutralizing activity is correlated with increased levels of chemokines in saliva of HIV-1-exposed uninfected individuals.
(University of Nairobi,, 2008)
AIM: Mucosal HIV-1 exposure stimulates a variety of mucosal immune responses, including IgA1-mediated virus neutralization, even in the absence of an established infection. We hypothesized that other immune molecules might ...
