Brief Report: Antibody Responses to Quadrivalent HPV Vaccination in HIV-Infected Young Women as Measured by Total IgG and Competitive Luminex Immunoassay.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We compared antibody responses of HIV-infected young women to the human papillomavirus (HPV) 6, 11, 16, and 18 vaccine using total immunoglobulin (Ig) G Luminex immunoassay (LIA) and competitive Luminex immunoassay (cLIA) assays. HPV18 seropositivity after HPV vaccination as measured with IgG LIA remained high (98%) 48 weeks after vaccination, in contrast with seropositivity as measured with cLIA (73%). Seropositivity rates at week 48 as measured by both IgG LIA and cLIA remained high for HPV6, 11, and 16 (93.5%-100%). These results suggest that the lower rate of seropositivity to HPV18 when cLIA vs. IgG LIA is used is a function of the assay and does not imply lower vaccine immunogenicity.
