Brief Summary:
The use of a Bioject 2000 needle free injection device (NFID) and a compressed immunization schedule will be safely tolerated and will augment the immunogenicity of the HIV-1 CTL epitope DNA vaccine (EP1090) in HIV-1 infected individuals receiving potent combination antiretroviral therapy (ART) and who have undetectable levels of viral replication in plasma.
