This review highlights some of the most common cytokines currently being tested as adjuvants in HIV-1-DNA vaccine regimens. We discuss their use in both the prophylactic and therapeutic setting. Finally, we describe a novel dendritic cell-targeted vaccine candidate for HIV-1 treatment and prevention called DermaVir and explore the combination of the DermaVir technology with the cytokine adjuvants interleukin-7 and interleukin-15.
