The immunological parameters were obtained in the laboratory of P. Kiepiela and P. Goulder in Durban, South Africa. The funding came from the NIH contract N01-A1-15442, "HLA typing and epitope mapping to guide HIV vaccine design."

The file lists all responses to targeted overlapping peptides (OLP) covering an entire clade C consensus sequence (410 peptides). From a cohort of 300 individuals, the strength of responses (spot forming cells per 1mio PBMC) is indicated for each responses above the cut-off of 50. Values above 1000 were derived from wells with more than 100 spots. The donor and donor's HLA are also indicated, with some HLA typings pending at the time of submission of this summary. The individuals were all recruited in Durban, South Africa, and were shown to be infected with clade C virus.
