We compared antibody responses to vaccination with recombinant E1E2 complex in heathy volunteers, non-human primates (NHPs), and mice METHODS: We analyzed 519 serum samples from participants in a phase 1 vaccine trial (NCT00500747) and compared them with serum or plasma samples from C57BL/6J mice (n=28) and rhesus macaques (n=4) immunized with the same HCV E1E2 antigen. Blood samples were collected at different timepoints and analyzed for antibody binding, neutralizing activity, and epitope specificity. Monoclonal antibodies from the immunized NHPs were isolated from single plasmablasts and memory B cells, and their immunogenetic properties were characterized.RESULTS: Antibody responses of the volunteers, NHPs, and mice, to the non-neutralizing epitopes on the E1 N-terminus and E2 hypervariable region 1 did not differ significantly. Antibodies from volunteers and NHPs that neutralized heterologous strains of HCV primarily interacted with epitopes in the antigen region 3. However, the neutralizing antibodies were not produced in sufficient levels for broad neutralization of diverse HCV isolates. Broadly neutralizing antibodies similar to the human VH1-69 class antibody specific for antigen region 3 were produced in the immunized NHPs.CONCLUSIONS: In an analysis of vaccinated volunteers, NHPs, and mice, we found that recombinant E1E2 vaccine antigen induces high-antibody titers that are insufficient to neutralize diverse HCV isolates. Antibodies from volunteers and NHPs bind to the same neutralizing epitopes for virus neutralization. NHPs can therefore be used as a preclinical model to develop HCV vaccines.
