Had two or fewer mutually monogamous relationships with partners believed to be HIV-uninfected and who did not use illicit drugs (illicit drug use or abuse that includes any injection drugs, methamphetamines (crystal meth), heroin, cocaine, including crack cocaine or chronic marijuana abuse) OR
Amenable to HIV risk reduction counseling, committed to maintaining behavior consistent with low risk of HIV exposure through the last required protocol clinic visit;
Healthy adult males and females, as assessed by a medical history, physical exam, ECG, and laboratory tests;
Age of at least 18 years of age on the day of screening and no greater than 62 years at time of vaccination;
Assessed by the clinic staff as being at "low risk" for HIV infection on the basis of sexual behaviors within the 12 months prior to enrollment defined as follows:
Sexually abstinent OR
Have completed protocol SSC-710 and received either DCVax-001 plus poly ICLC, poly ICLC only or sterile saline. If less than 6 volunteers who originally received placebo (poly ICLC only or sterile saline) under protocol SSC_710 are willing to participate and are found eligible to participate in this proposed study, new volunteers can be enrolled as long as they are eligible according to the remaining inclusion and exclusion criteria below.
In the opinion of the principal investigator or designee, has understood the information provided. (Written informed consent needs to be given before any study-related procedures are performed);

Exclusion Criterias

Receipt of an investigational product (not vaccine-related) within the last 12 months. Receipt of a non-HIV experimental vaccine(s) within the last 5 years in a prior vaccine trial. Exceptions may be made for vaccines that have subsequently undergone licensure by the FDA. For subjects who have received control/placebo in an experimental vaccine trial, or who have received an experimental vaccine(s) greater than 5 years ago, eligibility for enrollment will be determined by the investigators on a case-by-case basis.
Local: extensive, indurated redness and swelling involving most of the major circumference of the arm, not resolving within 72 hours;
In the opinion of the investigator, unlikely to comply with protocol

This trial will investigate whether immunizations with an MVA recombinant HIV vaccine are safe and whether they will boost immune responses generated by immunizations with a dendritic cell (DC) targeted protein vaccine, DCVax-001, plus poly ICLC in healthy HIV-uninfected volunteers. Investigators propose to assess the quality of immunity elicited by immunizations with MVA-CMDR only or by booster immunizations with MVA-CMDR in volunteers previously immunized with a DC-targeted HIV vaccine. This vaccination regimen can provide the proof-of-concept that DC targeted protein vaccines can prime strong immune responses and therefore be valuable in combination with other vaccine modalities against HIV or other diseases.
