Abstract

Numerous reports indicate that human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-exposed individuals from several high-risk groups remain seronegative but exhibit strong HIV-specific cell-mediated immunity. Here, Gene Shearer and Mario Clerici postulate that a potent cellular response can be protective against HIV infection and speculate on the significance of these data with respect to the development of vaccines.
