VAC-3S, a safe Immunotherapeutic HIV Vaccine decreased total HIV DNA and increased CD4/CD8 ratio: Phase I Final Results.
  "A trend was found between change of CD4/CD8 ratio at W24 and anti-3S titers at W12 (r=0.29, p=0.11). Globally, a dose-dependent decrease in CD8% has been found (p<0.001, ANOVA test)....At W24, we observed a decrease on CD8%(p=0.027, Wilcoxon paired test) and a significant increase in CD4% (p=0.031, Wilcoxon paired test) in the responder group.....CD4/CD8 ratio, CD8% decreases and CD4% decrease are also observed in 20 μg arm (p=0.03; p=0.03 and p=0.13 respectively; one-tailed Wilcoxon test). Increases in CD4/CD8 ratio and CD4% as well as decrease in CD8% were expected effects. A negative correlation was found between change from baseline of CD4+CD95+% and anti-3S titers at W24 (r=-0,59, p=0.002, Pearson test) suggesting protective effects of anti-3S antibodies of CD4+T cells against by stander apoptosis, in agreement with the mechanism of figure1. Further analysis are ongoing."
