    • Impact of transcriptome and gut microbiome on the response of HIV-1 infected individuals to a dendritic cell-based HIV therapeutic vaccine 

      Pastor Ibáñez, Roque; Díez Fuertes, Francisco; Sánchez Palomino, Sonsoles; Alcamí, Jose; Plana, Montserrat; Torrents, David; Leal, Lorna; García, Felipe (MDPI, 2021)
      Article
      Open Access
      Therapeutic vaccines based on dendritic cells offer a good approach to HIV-specific T-cell responses and partial control of the viral load after antiretroviral therapy interruption. The aim of the present study was to ...
    • Multitrait genome association analysis identifies new susceptibility genes for human anthropometric variation in the GCAT cohort
