Protective immunity against murine hepatitis virus (MHV) induced by intranasal or subcutaneous administration of hybrids of tobacco mosaic virus that carries an MHV epitope. (1/271)

Hybrids of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) were constructed with the use of fusion to the coat protein peptides of 10 or 15 amino acids, containing the 5B19 epitope from the spike protein of murine hepatitis virus (MHV) and giving rise to TMV-5B19 and TMV-5B19L, respectively. The TMV hybrids were propagated in tobacco plants, and the virus particles were purified. Immunogold labeling, with the use of the monoclonal MAb5B19 antibody, showed specific decoration of hybrid TMV particles, confirming the expression and display of the MHV epitope on the surface of the TMV. Mice were immunized with purified hybrid viruses after several regimens of immunization. Mice that received TMV-5B19L intranasally developed serum IgG and IgA specific for the 5B19 epitope and for the TMV coat protein. Hybrid TMV-5B19, administered by subcutaneous injections, elicited high titers of serum IgG that was specific for the 5B19 epitope and for coat protein, but IgA that was specific against 5B19 was not observed. Mice that were immunized with hybrid virus by subcutaneous or intranasal routes of administration survived challenge with a lethal dose (10 x LD50) of MHV strain JHM, whereas mice administered wild-type TMV died 10 d post challenge. Furthermore, there was a positive correlation between the dose of administered immunogen and protection against MHV infection. These studies show that TMV can be an effective vaccine delivery vehicle for parenteral and mucosal immunization and for protection from challenge with viral infection.  (+info)

Expression of noncovalent hepatitis C virus envelope E1-E2 complexes is not required for the induction of antibodies with neutralizing properties following DNA immunization. (2/271)

Interactive glycoproteins present on the surface of viral particles represent the main target of neutralizing antibodies. The ability of DNA vaccination to induce antibodies directed at such structures was investigated by using eight different expression plasmids engineered either to favor or to prevent interaction between the hepatitis C virus (HCV) envelope glycoproteins E1 and E2. Independently of the injection route (intramuscular or intraepidermal), plasmids expressing antigens capable of forming heterodimers presumed to be the prebudding form of the HCV envelope protein complex failed to induce any significant, stable antibodies following injection in mice. In sharp contrast, high titers of antibodies directed at both conformational and linear determinants were induced by using plasmids expressing severely truncated antigens that have lost the ability to form native complexes. In addition, only a truncated form of E2 induced antibodies reacting against the hypervariable region 1 of E2 (specifically with the C-terminal part of it) known to contain a neutralization site. When injected intraepidermally into small primates, the truncated E2-encoding plasmid induced antibodies able to neutralize in vitro the binding of a purified E2 protein onto susceptible cells. Because such antibodies have been associated with viral clearance in both humans and chimpanzees, these findings may have important implications for the development of protective immunity against HCV.  (+info)

Prevention of hepatitis A through active or passive immunization: Recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). (3/271)

Routine vaccination of children is the most effective way to reduce hepatitis A incidence nationwide over time. Since licensure of hepatitis A vaccine in 1995, this strategy has been implemented incrementally, starting with the recommendation of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) in 1996 to vaccinate children living in communities with the highest rates of infection and disease. These updated recommendations represent the next phase of this hepatitis A immunization strategy. Vaccination of children living in states and communities with consistently elevated rates of hepatitis A will provide protection from disease and is expected to reduce the overall incidence of hepatitis A. This report updates the ACIP's 1996 recommendations on the prevention of hepatitis A through immunization (MMWR 1996;45:[No. RR-151) and includes a) new data about the epidemiology of hepatitis A; b) recent findings about the effectiveness of community-based hepatitis A vaccination programs; and c) recommendations for the routine vaccination of children in states, counties, and communities with rates that are twice the 1987-1997 national average or greater (i.e., > or = 20 cases per 100,000 population) and consideration of routine vaccination of children in states, counties, and communities with rates exceeding the 1987-1997 national average (i.e., > or = 10 but <20 cases per 100,000 population). Unchanged in this report are previous recommendations regarding the vaccination of persons in groups at increased risk for hepatitis A or its adverse consequences and recommendations regarding the use of immune globulin for protection against hepatitis A.  (+info)

Immunogenicity and safety of hepatitis A vaccine in liver and renal transplant recipients. (4/271)

Organ transplant recipients with chronic hepatitis B or hepatitis C virus infection may be at increased risk of fulminant hepatitis A. Liver transplant (LTX) recipients, renal transplant (RTX) recipients, and healthy controls received 2 doses of hepatitis A vaccine 6 months apart. Anti-hepatitis A virus (anti-HAV) seroconversion after the primary dose occurred in 41% of the LTX patients, 24% of the RTX patients, and 90% of the controls. After the booster dose, the respective rates were 97%, 72%, and 100% (P<.001). RTX patients also had significantly lower geometric mean titers (GMTs) of anti-HAV than LTX patients and controls. In the RTX group, the seroconversion rate and GMT were inversely associated with the number of immunosuppressive drugs received by the patients. The vaccine was well tolerated. Hepatitis A vaccine can be recommended to LTX and RTX patients, but the patients should receive a full course of 2 doses before imminent exposure.  (+info)

Interference of antibody production to hepatitis B surface antigen in a combination hepatitis A/hepatitis B vaccine. (5/271)

A randomized trial comparing 3 manufacturing consistency lots of a combination hepatitis A/hepatitis B vaccine to each other and to hepatitis A vaccine and hepatitis B vaccine given separately and concurrently was done to evaluate safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity. Healthy volunteers >/=11 years of age were divided into 4 groups. Each of 3 groups received a separate consistency lot of the combination vaccine, and 1 group received separate but concurrent injections of hepatitis A and hepatitis B vaccines. Injections were given at weeks 0 and 24. The combination vaccine was generally well tolerated. The hepatitis A portion of the combination vaccine produced clinically acceptable high seropositivity rates 4 and 52 weeks after the first injection. The hepatitis B portion of the vaccine did not produce clinically acceptable seropositivity rates 4 weeks after the second injection. Lack of antibody production may be attributed, at least in part, to immunologic interference.  (+info)

Inactivated hepatitis A vaccine in Chinese patients with chronic hepatitis B infection. (6/271)

BACKGROUND: Hepatitis B (HBV)-infected patients have a higher morbidity and mortality when super-infected by hepatitis A (HAV). AIM: To evaluate the immunogenicity and safety of a commercial inactivated HAV vaccine in Chinese patients with chronic HBV infection. METHODS: Sixty-five HBV-infected patients (30 carriers, 22 chronic hepatitis, 13 cirrhosis), who were seronegative for HAV, received a dose of 1440 ELISA units of HAV vaccine at weeks 0 and 24. Twenty-eight healthy individuals aged 18-57 years, who were seronegative for both HBV and HAV infection, also received the same vaccination regimen. Seroconversion was defined as an anti-HAV titre >/= 33 mIU/mL. RESULTS: The seroconversion rates for the HBV-infected patients at weeks 2, 4 and 24 were 72, 91 and 80%, respectively. The corresponding geometric mean titres (GMTs) were 103, 311 and 123 mIU/mL. In the healthy control group the seroconversion rates were 86, 93 and 89% at weeks 2, 4 and 24. The corresponding GMTs were 112, 158 and 250 mIU/mL. There was no difference in the seroconversion rates between the two groups, but healthy controls had a significantly higher GMT at week 24 (P=0.04). Side-effects were more common in HBV patients. CONCLUSION: The HAV vaccine is equally efficacious in patients with chronic HBV infection.  (+info)

Immune responses to hepatitis C virus structural and nonstructural proteins induced by plasmid DNA immunizations. (7/271)

DNA-based immunizations have been used to elicit cellular immunity to hepatitis C virus (HCV) proteins in mice. Mice were immunized by intramuscular or intradermal injections of plasmid DNA derived from a near-full-length HCV genotype 1b genomic clone (pRC/B2) or individual genomic clones. These immunizations induced cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs), as revealed in standard chromium-release assays that used syngeneic peptide-pulsed or transfected target cells. These assays identified four CTL epitopes within the capsid, E1, and E2 regions of the polyprotein sequence of HCV genotype 1a that were cross-reactive with HCV genotype 1b. Additionally, CTLs derived from mice immunized with either NS3 or NS5 specifically lysed target cells sensitized to either the genotype 1a or 1b gene products. Nucleic acid immunizations also generated humoral immunity to HCV proteins, as detected by anti-HCV reactivity to NS3 and capsid in ELISAs and immunoblot assays.  (+info)

Prevalence of hepatitis B, D and C virus infections among children and pregnant women in Moldova: additional evidence supporting the need for routine hepatitis B vaccination of infants. (8/271)

Rates of acute hepatitis B are high in Moldova, but the prevalence of chronic infection is unknown. In 1994, we surveyed children and pregnant women, collected demographic information, and drew blood for laboratory testing. Among the 439 children (mean age, 5 years), the prevalence of antibody to hepatitis B core antigen (anti-HBc) and hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) were 17.1 and 6.8%, respectively. Among the 1098 pregnant women (mean age, 26 years), 52.4% were anti-HBc-positive and 9.7% were HBsAg-positive. Of the HBsAg-positive pregnant women, 35.6% were hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg) positive and 18.3% had antibodies to hepatitis D virus. The prevalence of antibody to hepatitis C virus was 1.4% in children and 2.3% in pregnant women. The high HBeAg prevalence among HBsAg-positive pregnant women and the high anti-HBc prevalence among children indicate that both perinatal and early childhood transmission contribute to the high hepatitis B virus endemicity in Moldova.  (+info)

BACKGROUND:Viral genetic variability presents a major challenge to the development of a prophylactic hepatitis C virus (HCV) vaccine. A promising HCV vaccine using chimpanzee adenoviral vectors (ChAd) encoding a genotype (gt) 1b non-structural protein (ChAd-Gt1b-NS) generated high magnitude T cell responses. However, these T cells showed reduced cross-recognition of dominant epitope variants and the vaccine has recently been shown to be ineffective at preventing chronic HCV. To address the challenge of viral diversity, we developed ChAd vaccines encoding HCV genomic sequences that are conserved between all major HCV genotypes and adjuvanted by truncated shark invariant chain (sIitr). METHODS:Age-matched female mice were immunised intramuscularly with ChAd (108 infectious units) encoding gt-1 and -3 (ChAd-Gt1/3) or gt-1 to -6 (ChAd-Gt1-6) conserved segments spanning the HCV proteome, or gt-1b (ChAd-Gt1b-NS control), with immunogenicity assessed 14-days post-vaccination. RESULTS:Conserved segment vaccines
Any program aimed at the development of a vaccine should consider several important issues because they may greatly influence the choice of immunogen used in the vaccine, the delivery system selected for its application, the population to be vaccinat
Objective Despite the development of highly effective direct-acting antivirals, a prophylactic vaccine is needed for eradicating HCV. A major hurdle of HCV vaccine development is to induce immunity against HCV with high genome diversity. We previously demonstrated that a soluble E2 (sE2) expressed from insect cells induces broadly neutralising antibodies (NAbs) and prevents HCV infection. The objective of this study is to develop a multivalent HCV vaccine to increase the antigenic coverage. ...

2010 and Mondal et al., 2009). In 2005, an HCV gt2 infectious clone was described supporting the production of infectious HCV particles in cell culture (HCVcc), enabling for the first time the investigation of the full viral life cycle (Lindenbach et al., 2005, Wakita et al., 2005 and Zhong et al., 2005). An infectious cell culture system for full length HCV gt1 was reported which is the most prevalent genotype worldwide (Li et al., 2012 and Yi et al., 2006), however, screening involving cell-culture adapted HCV have only been performed for gt2 and gt1/2 chimeric viruses (Chockalingam et al., 2010,.

CD4+ T lymphocyte responses are thought to play a major role in control of the hepatitis C virus (HCV). Few, however, have been mapped down to the level of peptide and HLA restriction. Furthermore, the ability of such T cells to respond to viruses which differ in genotype has not been addressed in detail. In most cases of persistent infection with HCV, CD4 proliferative responses are weak or absent. From a large cohort of persistently infected patients, we identified an individual with unusually robust and persistent responses in the face of chronic infection. We firstly mapped two peptide epitopes to regions of the nonstructural protein NS4 (aa1686-1705 and aa 1746-1765). However, in contrast to the genotype 1a derived antigens used for mapping, the infecting virus was identified as genotype 3a. Strikingly, the patients CD4 response to these epitopes were specific only for the genotype 1a sequence, and did not recognize genotype 3a synthetic peptides. Serologic assays indicated that prior ...

Our laboratory focusses on understanding how enveloped viruses attach to and enter cells to initiate viral replication and immunological responses that prevent infection with a vision to develop the worlds first preventative HCV vaccine for HCV elimination. Hepatitis C Virus contains two envelope glycoproteins, E1 and E2, that function as a heterodimer to mediate attachment and virus-cell membrane fusion. The viral glycoprotein E2 is primarily responsible for receptor binding to scavenger receptor class B type 1 (SRB1) and CD81. Antibodies directed towards regions of E2 that interfere with SRB1 or CD81 binding, block virus entry and are neutralizing antibodies. Therefore, understanding the structure of E2, how it interacts with both cellular receptors and how antibodies prevent these interactions are pivotal for vaccine development. Through our studies, we have identified a leading HCV vaccine candidate (HepSeeVaxDelta3) that we are currently assessing in preclinical studies as a recombinant ...
Recently, cell lifestyle systems producing hepatitis C virus particles (HCVcc) were developed. we developed serum-free culture systems producing high-titer single-density sf-HCVcc, showing similar biological properties as HCVcc.

Due to a high degree of genetic heterogeneity, HCV has been categorized in 6 essential genotypes and several subtypes epidemiologically, differing in around 30% and 20% of their nucleotide and amino Vorinostat acidity sequence, [3 respectively,4]. Genotypes display important biological and clinical variations [5C10]. Serotypes Rabbit Polyclonal to 5-HT-2C. never have been defined; nevertheless, different genotypes and subtypes display differential level of sensitivity to neutralizing antibodies within sera of chronically contaminated patients also to monoclonal neutralizing antibodies with restorative potential [6,11C14].

Urgent news for anyone with diabetes. If your doctor hasnt told you to get a hepatitis B vaccine yet-get ready.. In December, health authorities started recommending hepatitis B vaccines for all adults with diabetes.. When I heard this news my first thought was Are they joking?. Hasnt the vaccine industry done enough? Theyre already vaccinating as many children as they can into autism. And theyve still got hoards of people convinced that they need a yearly flu shot. But I guess theyve decided its time to get every adult immunized against something.. So the latest recommendation is aimed at the fastest growing population on the planet.. Diabetics.. Dont get me wrong. Hepatitis B is serious. But wasnt so long ago that the only ones who needed a hepatitis vaccine were health care workers and people at risk for sexually transmitted diseases.. Its bad enough that infants are now subjected to this vaccine. (Required in all 50 states, by the way.) Last I checked, most babies werent in ...
Here, we investigate how VH1-69 bNAbs achieve cross-genotype recognition of the E2 neutralizing face and the genetic requirements for the immune system to generate such bNAbs. To overcome the inherent flexibility of E2 (28), we designed an E2 core domain construct (29) of the prototypic genotype 1a isolate, H77, and determined its crystal structure with bNAb AR3C (Fig. 1B and fig. S1A) (29). In parallel, Khan et al. (30) reported the crystal structure of a different E2 core construct derived from a genotype 2a isolate, J6, with nonneutralizing mAb 2A12. Structural analysis of H77 E2c in complex with AR3C Fab and alanine scanning mutagenesis (16, 29, 31) mapped AR3 to the E2 front layer and part of the CD81 binding loop (amino acids 426 to 443 and 529 to 531; Fig. 1A and fig. S1). Most residues in AR3 are highly conserved among HCV genotypes (fig. S1C and table S1). Negative-stain electron microscopy revealed that in soluble E2, AR3 is exposed on the surface and not masked by the glycan shield or ...

A second area of concern is the VAERS reports involving Hepatitis B vaccine administered with other vaccines (vaccine cocktails). Health officials are fond of dismissing those reports as being attributable to Hepatitis B vaccine, because of the multiple other antigens present (almost as if they wanted to cloak Hepatitis B vaccine reactions from scrutiny). Lets avoid that controversy and focus on the extremely disturbing VAERS data of Hepatitis B vaccine with other vaccines. These reports amount to only one third of total reports (7,275), but account for two thirds of total deaths (291). The median onset of those deaths was 2 days after vaccination -- displaying a clear temporal association. The median age of death was 0.5 years in this group. 50% of all Hepatitis-B-vaccine-cocktail reports were serious (died, emergency room, hospitalized, disabled). I grouped convulsive reactions together from the Hep-B-vaccine-cocktail data and found a deeply disturbing pattern. These were anything labeled ...
PURPOSE: Hepatitis B vaccine has become an effective means of preventing complications of hepatitis B. However, it occasionally induces serious side effects. We report a case of multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) that occurred following hepatitis B vaccination. METHODS: A 23-year-old woman with a one-week history of progressive loss of vision in the left eye and bilateral photopsia was referred for examination. Her symptoms appeared 24 hours after a booster intramuscular injection of hepatitis B vaccine. RESULTS: Clinical examination, fluorescein angiography, and the course of events were typical of MEWDS. CONCLUSIONS: This case demonstrates the occasional occurrence of MEWDS after hepatitis B vaccine and suggests that hepatitis B virus immunization may be a risk factor for this retinal condition.

Hepatitis C is an inflammatory infectious disease of the liver caused by the Hepatitis C Virus (HCV). It is a global pandemic, chronically inflicting 150 million people worldwide, with millions of new infections arising annually. The standard therapy of HCV is expensive, associated with severe side effects, and has variable success rates. Thus far, no HCV vaccine has been developed, owing to the challenges that faced and still face its development. Despite these challenges, several attempts have been taken to develop a vaccine, some of which have progressed to phase II clinical trials. Most of these attempts, however, have focused on HCV genotypes 1 and 2 as vaccine targets, and almost no attention has been given to HCV genotype 4 (HCV-4), the viral genotype most prevalent in the Middle East and Central Africa. In an attempt to fill this gap in HCV-4 vaccine research, this project describes the in silico identification of a group of highly conserved and immunogenic T-cell epitopes from the HCV-4 ...
This laboratory-based substudy of ATN 024 and 025 will evaluate the genetic contribution to highly individualized immune responses to hepatitis B vaccine in individuals and confirm the correlation of specific human leukocyte antigen (HLA) alleles and haplotypes with Hepatitis B Virus (HVB) antibody concentrations and antibody decay kinetics in vaccinated adolescents. Approximately 5 ml of whole blood will be collected from study participants at the time of the week 28 visit or at any subsequent study visit or clinic visit following successful completion of the week 28 visit.
