Description

Antigenic drift, defined as the genetic variation of the HIV-1 envelope gene that results in antigenic variation during natural infection, may confound attempts to achieve protective immunity using a vaccine based solely on HIV-1 envelope proteins. Inclusion of conserved core and polymerase proteins along with envelope protein in a candidate vaccine may address some of the problems with antigenic variability. A prime-boost immunization approach using a novel priming immunogen expressing env, gag, and pol genes of the HIV-1 IIIB strain will be attempted in this study. In Part I, vaccinia-im...

Eligibility criteria

  • Inclusion Criteria
  • Subjects must have:
  • Negative ELISA and Western blot for HIV-1 within 6 weeks prior to immunization.
  • Normal history and physical exam.
  • History of smallpox vaccination at least 5 years prior to study entry (Part I) OR no prior smallpox vaccination (Part II).
  • Absolute CD4 count >= 400 cells/mm3.
  • Normal urinalysis.
  • NOTE:
  • No more than 10 percent of volunteers in both Parts I and II may be over 50 years of age.
  • Exclusion Criteria
  • Co-existing Condition:
  • Subjects with the following symptoms or conditions are excluded:
  • Positive hepatitis B surface antigen.
  • Medical or psychiatric condition (such as recent suicidal ideation or present psychosis) that precludes compliance.
  • Occupational responsibilities that preclude compliance.
  • Active syphilis. NOTE: Subjects with serology documented to be a false positive or due to a remote (> 6 months) treated infection are eligible.
  • Active tuberculosis. NOTE: Subjects with a positive PPD and a normal chest x-ray showing no evidence of TB and not requiring isoniazid therapy are eligible.
  • Eczema.
  • Household contact with persons meeting any of the following criteria:
  • pregnancy, less than 12 months of age, eczema, immunodeficiency disease, or use of immunosuppressive medications.
  • Subjects with the following prior conditions are excluded:
  • History of immunodeficiency, chronic illness, autoimmune disease, or use of immunosuppressive medications.
  • History of anaphylaxis or other serious adverse reactions to vaccines.
  • Eczema within the past year.
  • History of serious allergic reaction to any substance, requiring hospitalization or emergent medical care (e.g., Steven-Johnson syndrome, bronchospasm, or hypotension).
  • Prior psychiatric condition (such as history of suicide attempts or past psychosis) that precludes compliance.
  • History of cancer unless there has been surgical excision that is considered to have achieved cure.
  • Prior Medication:
  • Excluded:
  • Prior HIV vaccines.
  • Live attenuated vaccines within the past 60 days. NOTE: Medically indicated subunit or killed vaccines (e.g., influenza, pneumococcal) do not exclude but should be administered at least 2 weeks prior to HIV immunizations.
  • Experimental agents within the past 30 days.
  • Prior Treatment:
  • Excluded:
  • Receipt of blood products or immunoglobulins within the past 6 months. It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that any activity that might expose subject to HIV (unprotected sex or needle sharing) be avoided.
