immunology 101

Apr 26, 2004

Dear Dr. Mark:

Is it the same exact lymphocyte subset that responds to vaccination that also responds to HIV infection? ie., Antibodies to Hep vax are generated by the same mechanism and cell types as are antibodies to HIV infect? Or does dynamic of vital infection act differently? thanks...

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The same kinds of cells required to elicit an immune response to a vaccine are those that are required for an immune response to HIV infection.
