Inhibition of HIV-1 infection in activated PBMCs by anti-CXCR4 mAbs. (a) PBMCs activated with anti-CD3/CD28 for 1 day were infected with either R5 HIV-1JR-FL or X4 HIV-1NL4-3 for 2 hours, washed and then cultured in the presence of 10 μg/ml of the A145, A120, A80 rat IgG mAbs or isotype control rat IgG mAb mixture. After 5 days, virus production in the culture supernatants was determined by p24 ELISA. (b) Activated PBMCs infected with R5 HIV-1JR-FL, R5 HIV-1JR-CSF, X4 HIV-1NL4-3 or X4 HIV-1IIIB were aliquoted and cultured in the presence of 10 μg/ml of the A120 mAb or isotype control mAb. The p24 levels in the culture supernatants were monitored daily by ELISA. Data shown for both (a) and (b) are representative of 3 independent experiments using PBMCs from different donors.
