NeutNet, a collaborationinvolving 18 independent laboratories from 12 countries,showed during the first phase clear differences in neutral-ization assay sensitivity that were dependent on both theantibody (TriMab, 4E10, sCD4) and the virus used http:/ /www.PlosOne.org . The second phase of NeutNet focusedon testing polyclonal reagents against a panel of viruses with 17 different assays. Methods Each laboratory evaluated TriMab, 8 HIV-positive and oneseronegative sera at a given range of dilutions against 8 viruses representing different subtypes and phenotypes with 17 different assays. Assays utilized uncloned virussupernatant (virus infectivity assays-VIA) or Env-pseudo-typed viruses (PSV assays). Target cells included PBMCsand engineered cell lines in a single- or multiple-cycleinfection format. A range of read-outs were used, whichincluded intra- and extra-cellular p24 detection, and luci-ferase or beta-galactosidase reporter gene expression. Results Neutralization with TriMab showed variation for bothPSV and VI assays when comparing results of phase I andII. Negative serum gave sporadic neutralization in bothtypes of assays only when the inhibitory concentration(IC) 50 was considered. IC50 showed more variation thanIC 75 and 90 for PBMC-based VIA. PSV assays were in gen-eral not more sensitive than VIA. Variation was dependent on both sera and viruses used. Specific assay to assay com-parison showed impact of the target cell used. Conclusion In agreement with our phase I observations, we hereobserved that also for polyclonal agents, the assay condi-tions seem to influence the outcome of HIV-1 neutraliza- from AIDS Vaccine 2009Paris, France. 19–22 October 2009Published: 22 October 2009 Retrovirology   2009, 6 (Suppl 3):P46doi:10.1186/1742-4690-6-S3-P46 <supplement> <title> <p>AIDSVaccine 2009</p> </title><editor>AnnaLauraRoss</editor> <note>Meetingabstracts – Asingle PDF containingallabstracts inthis Supplement is available <ahref="http://www.biomedcentral.com/content/files/pdf/1742-4690-6-S3-full.pdf">here</a>.</note> <url>http://www.biomedcentral.com/content/pdf/1471-2105-10-S12-info.pdf</url></supplement> This abstract is available from: http://www.retrovirology.com/content/6/S3/P46© 2009 Scarlatti et al; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.  Publish with BioMed Central  and every scientist can read your work free of charge "BioMed Central will be the most significant development for disseminating the results of biomedical research in our lifetime."

Since protective neutralizing immunity in vivo is not yet defined, no single assay can be recommended toachieve optimal information on the neutralization poten-tial of a serum or agent.
