Any global strategy for controlling the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic is likely to rely heavily on immunization of infants and children. Given the well-documented differences in children's responses to traditional vaccines, we initiated this study to extend our findings on DNA vaccination of adult chimpanzees to immunologically immature infant chimpanzees. Our findings were consistent with our previous work in adults as we observed that the DNA vaccines used here were both well tolerated and immunogenic within weeks of the initial vaccination.
