    Abstract

    The IFNγ ELISpot assay is used widely for high through-put screening of HIV-specific responses in studies of HIV infection and vaccine studies. However, dual production of IFNγ/IL-2 and increased proliferative capacity may be associated with better natural control of HIV infection. We evaluated a novel fluorospot assay enabling the identification of dual IFNγ/IL-2 producing antigen-specific cells and compared it with intracellular cytokine staining by standard flow cytometry in individuals with natural control of HIV-infection.
