Focuses on a study by R.S. Veazey and colleagues that tested whether virus transmission can be prevented by vaginal application of b12, a monoclonal antibody specific for HIV-1 gp120. Use of simian-human immundeficiency virus-162P4 in the study; Local application of b12 in rhesus macaque monkeys; Periodical where the study was published.

    The molecularly cloned viruses known as SIVmac239/R17Y and SIVmac239/YEnef cause extensive lymphocyte activation and induce an acute disease syndrome in macaque monkeys. One manifestation of this syndrome is a severe diffuse cutaneous maculopapular exanthem that is similar to the exanthem...

    Given the mucosal transmission of HIV-1, we compared whether a mucosal vaccine could induce mucosal cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) and protect rhesus macaques against mucosal infection with simian/human immunodeficiency virus (SHIV) more effectively than the same vaccine given subcutaneously....

    Because Gibraltar's macaques (Macaca sylvanus) have frequent contact with humans, we assayed 79 macaques for antibodies to enzootic primate viruses. All macaques were seronegative for herpesvirus B, simian T-cell lymphotropic virus, simian retrovirus, simian immunodeficiency virus, and rhesus...

    The article focuses on a study which proposed the thickening of the male foreskin infected with HIV by applying an estrogen-containing cream as a transmission barrier of the HIV virus during intercourse. Led by Professor Roger Short of the University of Melbourne's Faculty of Medicine, he and...

    Conserved in all primate lentivirus genomes, Nef promotes viral replication and infectivity, influences the trafficking of a large number of surface receptors and interferes with TCR signalling, consequently modulating T-cell activation. In vivo observations with Long Term Non-Progressors...

    The article discusses the study concerning rapid seeding of the viral reservoir prior to simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) viraemia in rhesus monkey. It notes that HIV-1 can persist in latently infected memory T cells, where it avoids clearance by antiretroviral therapy (ART). According to the...

  • Protection of Rhesus Monkeys against Dengue Virus Challenge after Tetravalent Live Attenuated Dengue Virus Vaccination. Sun, Wellington; Nisalak, Ananda; Gettayacamin, Montip; Eckels, Kenneth H.; Putnak, J. Robert; Vaughn, David W.; Innis, Bruce L.; Thomas, Stephen J.; Endy, Timothy P. // Journal of Infectious Diseases;6/15/2006, Vol. 193 Issue 12, p1658 

    Rhesus monkeys develop viremia after dengue virus (DENV) inoculation and have been used as an animal model to study DENV infection and DENV vaccine candidates. We evaluated, in this model, the protective efficacy of a live attenuated tetravalent DENV vaccine (TDV) candidate against parenteral...

    Knowledge of virulence and immunogenicity is important for development of live-attenuated dengue vaccines. We previously reported that an infectious clone-derived dengue type 4 virus (DENV-4) passaged in MRC-5 cells acquired a Glu345Lys (E-E345K) substitution in the E protein domain III...

  • Seroconversion to HCoV-NL63 in Rhesus Macaques. Dijkman, Ronald; Mulder, H. Lie; Rumping, Lynne; Kraaijvanger, Ilse; Deijs, Martin; Jebbink, Maarten F.; Verschoor, Ernst J.; van der Hoek, Lia // Viruses (1999-4915);Dec2009, Vol. 1 Issue 3, p647 

    HCoV-NL63 is a recently identified respiratory virus. Its pathogenesis has not been fully unraveled because an animal model is currently lacking. Here we examined whether rhesus macaques encounter HCoV-NL63 infections during life, by examining the levels of antibodies to HCoV-NL63 in time. The...
