Reporting Groups
AFO-18 18 peptides representing 15 CD8 and 3 CD4 epitopes on HIV-1 plus 1 CD4 T helper epitope unrelated to HIV in an adjuvant (CAF01). Total 4.5 mg peptide (250 micro gram of each peptide) in CAF01 adjuvant. Total volume of 1.25 ml was injected i.m. (in m. deltoideus) at weeks 0, 2, 4, 8
Saline Placebo was Sterile saline injection, 1.25 ml i.m. (in m. deltoideus) at each vaccination weeks 0, 2, 4, 8
