A Shuttle Plasmid, Recombinant MVA/HIV1 Clinical Vaccine Constructs and a Mechanism for Enhanced Stability of Foreign Gene Inserts by Codon Alternation and for Insertion of the Foreign Gene Between Two Vaccinia Virus Essential Genes

Since the onset of the AIDS epidemic more than two decades ago, enormous efforts have been directed to making a vaccine that will protect against human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV); an effective vaccine is thought to require the induction of cellular and humoral responses. Vaccine candidates have...
