However, the protective efficacy of this vaccine regimen against highly heterologous SIV challenges has to be examined in future studies. 3 Induction of Effector Memory T-Cell Responses at Viral Entry Sites One major limitation of current vaccine candidates is the fact that induced memory T-cell responses transform increasingly into lymphoid tissue-based central memory cells. This might be due to the decreasing amount of antigen provided by the vaccine vectors, as most of these vectors are nonpersistent.
