The immediate questions to present themselves are: (a) how significant can such an enhancement be and (b) how large an antibody concentration is required to effectively neutralize the gp120 proteins and avoid the enhancement. The answers to these questions depend on the values of different rate constants and binding probabilities including the rate at which virus particles collide with the surface of an immune cell and the probability that a virus particle binds to either an Fc receptor or a CD4 receptor.

If a cell reacts to one of these proteins, it is destroyed. Cells that do not react to the body’s own proteins are released to the blood as “mature T-cells”. In the specific response to an infection, lines of T-cells that react strongly to the proteins produced by the infectious agent will multiply particularly fast and thus establish a population of immune cells that effectively can recognize and destroy the pathogen. Dendritic cells represent the first line of defense. They are found near the external and internal surfaces of the body where an infectious agent will first appear.

This instability is related to the time delay and the significant gain factor associated with the virus reproduction process. However, it is a system’s property and its occurrence depends on several other factors as well. We shall provide a more detailed discussion of the mechanisms involved in this type of instability in Chap. 4. 32 O. Lund et al. 7 HIV Vaccination and Anti-Retrovirus Therapy The purpose of a vaccination is to stimulate the immune system in such a way that it exhibits a fast and specific response to a given pathogen.
