HIV preventive vaccine research at the ANRS: the lipopeptide vaccine approach

The HIV (human immunodeficiency virus)/AIDS epidemic is of unprecedented gravity and is spreading rapidly, notably in the most disadvantaged regions of the world. The search for a preventive vaccine is thus an absolute priority. For over 10 years the ANRS (Agence Nationale de Recherches sur le SIDA) has been committed to an original programme combining basic science and clinical research.

HIV vaccines of the first generation are, in contrast to most currently licensed vaccines, unlikely to provide sterilizing immunity against infection with HIV. However, they are expected to exert a beneficial effect on the maintenance of CD4 T-cel...
