Abstract To test the protection afforded by a weakly pathogenic HIV-2 isolate against the superinfection or development of SIV-induced disease, we intrarectally challenged six HIV-2-preinfected rhesus monkeys with a pathogenic isolate of SIVmac251. At the time of SIV challenge, none of these HIV-2-infected animals was positive for virus isolation, p27-Gag antigenemia, or HIV-2 provirus detection in PBMCs or peripheral lymph nodes. However, all monkeys exhibited anti-HIV-2 antibody titers ranging from 10(2) to 10(3). Neutralizing antibodies against the challenge SIV strain were also detected in two animals. After rectal exposure to SIVmac251, five of the six HIV-2-preinfected macaques were superinfected. SIVmac251 DNA sequences were detected repeatedly in the PBMCs of the five superinfected animals and the two controls, whereas no HIV-2 provirus was detected for 14 months postchallenge. The one monkey that resisted superinfection was negative for all SIV infection criteria. This monkey exhibited the highest anti-SIV ELISA and cross-neutralizing antibody titers on the day of SIV challenge. Preinfection with a weakly pathogenic HIV-2 ROD isolate protected one of six macaques from infection with the closely related pathogenic SIVmac251 isolate, but no protection from the progression of disease was evidenced in the other five.
