Standardized Assessments of Neutralizing Antibodies for HIV/AIDS Vaccine Development

Induction of broadly cross-reactive neutralizing antibodies is a high priority for AIDS vaccine development but one that has been proven
difficult to be achieved. While most immunogens generate antibodies that neutralize a subset of T cell line adapted strains of HIV-1,
none so far have generated a potent, broadly cross-reactive response against primary isolates of the virus.
ViralPseudotypeUnit's insight:

Many useful resources not just for HIV.

Evolution and Ecology of Influenza A Viruses.

Wild aquatic bird populations have long been considered the natural reservoir for influenza A viruses with virus transmission from these birds seeding other avian and mammalian hosts. While most evidence still supports this dogma, recent studies in bats have suggested other reservoir species may also exist. Extensive surveillance studies coupled with an enhanced awareness in response to H5N1 and pandemic 2009 H1N1 outbreaks is also revealing a growing list of animals susceptible to infection with influenza A viruses. Although in a relatively stable host-pathogen interaction in aquatic birds, antigenic, and genetic evolution of influenza A viruses often accompanies interspecies transmission as the virus adapts to a new host. The evolutionary changes in the new hosts result from a number of processes including mutation, reassortment, and recombination. Depending on host and virus these changes can be accompanied by disease outbreaks impacting wildlife, veterinary, and public health.
