Most EHEC subunit vaccine candidates tested to date are comprised of known virulence factors, such as Stx and the T3SS-related proteins. These virulence factors are well characterized and are known to be essential for the onset of EHEC colonization and/or host damage. Further, it is well documented that the main protection mechanism for these vaccine candidates is the induction of neutralizing antibodies (4). However, the DNA sequences encoded in the genome of EHEC strains may contain unveiled gene-encoding antigenic proteins, which have not yet been investigated as vaccine candidates. Computational vaccinology tools have been proposed as a potentially powerful aid in vaccine development, particularly for new or emerging pathogens for which critical antigenic determinants and/or virulence factors knowledge is limited (56). This work combines comparative genomics and immunoinformatics analysis of available EHEC genomes in the search for vaccine candidates. This approach represent an unbiased ...
The global Subunit Vaccines market is classified on the basis of type, product type, indications, application and geography. A vaccine is a biological preparation that delivers active acquired immunity to a specific disease. A vaccine usually contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins or one of its surface proteins. The agent stimulates the bodys immune system to identify the agent as a threat, destroy it, and keep a record of it so that the immune system can more easily recognize and destroy any of these microorganisms that it later encounters.. There are different types of vaccines such as inactivated, toxoid, attenuated, subunit, conjugate, and so on. Subunit vaccines are vaccines that use only part of the disease-causing virus.Subunit vaccines, like inactivated whole-cell vaccines, do not contain live components of the pathogen. They differ from inactivated whole-cell vaccines, by containing ...

The focus of this study was to immunize patients with HER-2/neu overexpressing cancers with a multipeptide vaccine comprised of four HER-2/neu peptides that had been identified as the most immunogenic, i.e., those that generated immunity in the majority of patients immunized in a previous study (1) . Additional analysis demonstrated that these four HER-2/neu peptides were associated with high affinity binding to multiple DR alleles. Thus, immunodominant HER-2/neu peptide epitopes determined by in vivo immunogenicity also bind MHC class II molecules with high affinity in vitro. However, only a minority of patients immunized with the multipeptide vaccine developed HER-2/neu peptide-specific T cell or antibody immunity, and none developed HER-2/neu protein-specific immunity.. The in vivo immunogenicity of HER-2/neu peptides could have been predicted by in vitro binding to MHC class II alleles. It is well known that MHC class I molecules recognize small peptide epitopes, 8-12 residues in size, which ...

Vaccines are currently the most successful prophylactic intervention against many infectious diseases. Subunit vaccines are a promising strategy for the development of novel effective vaccines, however, protein subunits are poorly immunogenic alone. Successful subunit vaccines require formulation with adjuvant compounds in order to stimulate cells of the innate immune system and generate protective adaptive immune responses. The development of vaccine adjuvants is critical for subunit vaccine development, but requires improved high throughput screening methods that reliably predict in vivo immune responses. Pattern recognition receptor (PRR) agonists are a growing class of potential vaccine adjuvants that are able to shape both the scale and character of the immune response to subunit vaccines through the direction of CD4 T cell polarization. We have applied a high-throughput in vitro assay to assess the CD4 T cell polarization potential of a panel of PRR agonists. Using this system, we ...

Influenza (flu) viruses change continuously, therefore also the parts of viruses used in influenza vaccines can vary from year to year. In Europe, manufacturers/marketing holders of these vaccines are required to be involved in ongoing clinical trials and to present the results to the competent authorities each year. The current study is a phase IIIa clinical trial with a commercially available vaccine (Influvac®) supplied in pre filled syringes. It is part of the ongoing clinical trial program for Influvac® and will be done to assess the immunogenicity and safety and tolerability of next seasons trivalent influenza subunit vaccine in two groups of healthy subjects: subjects aged ,= 18 and ,= 60 years and subjects ,= 61 years of age (elderly ...
In malaria‐endemic areas, a nagging issue is the failure of naturally exposed individuals to develop sterile long‐lasting protective immunity. This may be due to several factors including the stage specificity of parasite antigen expression, the antigenic variability among field parasites, and the profound immune dysregulation caused by pre‐erythrocytic and erythrocytic stages (Renia & Goh, 2016; Scholzen & Sauerwein, 2016; Van Braeckel‐Budimir et al, 2016). These factors could also contribute to explain why despite tremendous investments and years of research, progress on the vaccination front has been only modest. Clinical efficacy of the most advanced subunit vaccine candidate against P. falciparum (RTS,S) is limited and quickly wanes over time (Olotu et al, 2016). Hopes are emerging from whole attenuated sporozoite vaccination strategies (Sissoko et al, 2017), but the disappointing RTS,S results combined with the fact that vaccine research on P. vivax is only beginning (Tham et al, ...

M2 peptide is under clinical investigation as a target for universal flu vaccines. Studies have shown that Abs induced by M2 vaccines can provide cross-strain protection against flu A virus challenge. Because of the high level expression of M2 protein on the cell surface of flu virus infected cells and minimal neutralizing activities of M2 Abs in vitro, Ab-mediated cytotoxicity by NK cells has been implicated as a protection mechanism by M2 peptide vaccines. However, the studies were mostly based on the observations using M2 immune sera. Thus, to better understand immune protection mechanisms by M2 vaccines, we generated 4 mAbs. Although all mAbs showed little antiviral activity in vitro, adoptive transfer of 2 of 4 mAbs could confer protection against lethal flu A virus challenge in naïve mice. More importantly, the protection was not affected by depletion of NK cells in mice. Further characterizations revealed that the 2 protective mAbs recognize core epitopes located at the N-terminal 10 ...
the prime-boost and DNA vaccine approaches induced significant protection in hamsters, as well as a specific IgG antibody response and sterilising immunity. Although vaccination with recombinant fragment of LigBrep also produced a strong antibody response, it was not immunoprotective. These results highlight the potential of LigBrep as a candidate antigen for an effective vaccine against leptospirosis and emphasise the use of the DNA prime-protein boost as an important strategy for vaccine development ...

22] It is, as the appellant agreed at oral proceedings, common general knowledge that structural proteins of a virus, i.e. the proteins involved in formation of the viral capsid, or in the case of enveloped viruses, additionally those situated in the viral envelope, are potential candidates for the inclusion in subunit vaccines. This is so because structural proteins are present at the outside of the virion and are thus exposed to the immune system. Therefore, it is expected that upon infection with ISAV, antibodies are preferably elicited against these structural proteins and that these antibodies may achieve neutralization of the virus. Therefore, vaccine preparations containing, instead of for example the whole inactivated virus, only one (or more) of the structural proteins, i.e. so-called subunit vaccines, would also be expected to have the same effect, i.e. to elicit neutralizing antibodies ...

CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) play a critical role in anti-tumor immunity. Although multiple trials of cancer vaccines, particularly using short peptides recognized by CD8+ T cells, have resulted in the development of measurable immune responses, only a minority of patients has experienced clinical benefit such as tumor regression. On the other hand, accumulating data show that peptide immunization induces either tolerance or activation of peptide-specific T cells depending on doses, routes and frequency of peptide administration. In some experiments, vaccination with peptides recognized by CD8+ T cells caused enhanced tumor outgrowth associated with peptide-induced tolerance. However, the detailed mechanism(s) involved in this unfavorable immune response by peptide vaccinations has not been determined. In the present study, we analyzed NY-ESO-1 peptide vaccinations using a new tumor model of BALB/c transplanted tumors expressing NY-ESO-1, which is a cancer/testis (CT) antigen discovered by ...

Background:. HER2 over-expression is associated with more aggressive malignant disease. The introduction of trastuzumab and other HER2-directed therapies, however, has led to improved prognosis for patients (pts) with HER2 over-expressing (OE) tumors. Currently, no HER2-targeted therapies are available for patients with HER2 low-expressing (LE) (1+, 2+ by IHC) tumors. We are conducting a randomized, controlled Phase II trial of multiple peptide vaccines enrolling patients with any level of HER2 expression (1+, 2+ and 3+). Here, we report survival data based on levels of HER2 expression in our unvaccinated, control pts.. Methods:. After standard of care therapy, disease-free, high-risk BCa pts were randomized to receive either peptide+GM-CSF (Vaccine Group, VG) or GM-CSF alone (Control Group, CG) in six, monthly doses followed by four boosters every six months. Pts were prospectively followed for recurrence. Demographic information was available for all pts and was compared between groups using ...

The Eimeria species, causative agents of the disease coccidiosis, are genetically complex protozoan parasites endemic in livestock. Drug resistance remains commonplace among the Eimeria, and alternatives to chemotherapeutic control are being sought. Vaccines based upon live formulations of parasites are effective, but production costs are high, stimulating demand for a recombinant subunit vaccine. The identity of antigens suitable for inclusion in such vaccines remains elusive. Selection of immunoprotective antigens of the Eimeria species as vaccine candidates based upon recognition by the host immune system has been unsuccessful, obscured by the considerable number of molecules that are immunogenic but not immunoprotective. This is a common problem which characterizes work with most eukaryotic parasites. The identification of a selective criterion to directly access genetic loci that encode immunoprotective antigens of Eimeria maxima using a mapping strategy based upon parasite genetics, immune
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a validated target for several cancers including lung, colorectal, and certain subtypes of breast cancer. Cetuximab targets ligand binding of EGFR, but major problems like high cost, short t1/2, toxicity, and emergence of resistance are associated with the drug. Immunization with EGFR B cell epitopes will train the immune system to produce specific Abs that can kill cancer cells. Also, therapy with stable, less-expensive, and nontoxic EGFR peptide mimics will block EGFR signaling and inhibit cancer growth. We designed three peptides based on the contact sites between EGF and EGFR. The B cell epitopes were synthesized alone and also linked with the measles virus T cell epitope to produce a chimeric peptide vaccine. The peptide vaccines were immunogenic in both mice and rabbits and Abs raised against the vaccine specifically bound EGFR-expressing cells and recombinant human EGFR protein. The peptide mimics and the anti-peptide Abs were able to inhibit ...
Initiation of antiviral and anti-tumour T cell responses is probably achieved mainly by dendritic cells (DC) transporting antigen from the periphery into organised lymphoid tissues. To develop T cell vaccines it is, therefore, important to understand the accessibility of the antigen to DC in vivo and whether DC are activated by vaccination. Here we have evaluated the immunogenicity of a liposomal vaccine formulation with antigenic peptides derived from the glycoprotein of the lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus. Liposome-encapsulated peptides were highly immunogenic when administered intradermally and elicited protective antiviral immunity. After intradermal injection, liposomes formed antigen depots which facilitated long-lasting in vivo antigen loading of dendritic cells almost exclusively in the local draining lymph nodes. The immunogenicity of the liposomal peptide vaccine was further enhanced by incorporation of immunostimulatory oligonucleotides leading to activation of DC. This optimised ...

Despite the discovery of many potential antigens for subunit vaccines, universal protection is often lacking due to the limitations of conventional delivery methods. Subunit vaccines primarily induce antibody-mediated humoral responses, whereas potent antigen-specific cellular responses are required for prevention against some pathogenic infections. Nanoparticles have been utilised in nanomedicine and are promising candidates for vaccine or drug delivery. Nanoparticle vehicles have been demonstrated to be efficiently taken up by dendritic cells and induce humoral and cellular responses. This review provides an overview of nanoparticle vaccine development; in particular, the preparation of nanoparticles using a templating technique is highlighted, which would alleviate some of the disadvantages of existing nanoparticles. We will also explore the cellular fate of nanoparticle vaccines. Nanoparticle-based antigen delivery systems have the potential to develop new generation vaccines against currently

In this study by Yagi et al. a novel percutaneous immunization strategy was used to deliver a peptide vaccine to melanoma patients. This method of percutaneous peptide immunization (PPI) used epidermal Langerhans cells as antigen presenting cells to deliver the vaccine effectively to the immune system. The outer layer of the epidermis was removed in order to increase the permeability of the skin to the peptide vaccine and allowed the maturation of the Langerhans cells for enhanced antigen presentation.. Pro5® MHC Pentamers for MAGE-2 (A*24:02 / EYLQLVFGI), and tyrosinase (A*24:02 / AFLPWHRLF), and a custom Pro5® MHC Pentamer for MAGE-3 (A*24:02 / IMPKAGLLI), were used to monitor frequencies of antigen-specific T cells in patients after immunization. After several rounds of immunization, staining with ...
The introduction of vaccines is regarded as one of the most successful medical interventions to date, due to their effectiveness at combating diseases that require the induction of a robust immune response. However there is a clear need for the development of new vaccines for diseases including HIV, TB and malaria and for cancer which require the induction of a potent cellular immune response. Advancements in the field of vaccine research have resulted in a move away from the use of whole organisms and towards the use of subunit vaccines which consist of highly purified antigens and thus offer a much more attractive safety profile. Adjuvants are immunostimulatory components that are included in subunit vaccine formulations to help to direct and amplify an appropriate adaptive immune response. The most commonly used adjuvant to date, alum, is incorporated into vaccine formulations that are aimed at inducing humoral immune responses however alum is a poor inducer of cellular immune re... ...

The safety and tolerability of this drug combination will also be studied. Researchers also want to collect long-term follow-up information.

Vaccines were first introduced more than 200 years ago and have since played a key role in the reduction of morbidity and mortality caused by infectious diseases. Many of the safest and most effective vaccines in use today are based on attenuated live viruses, as they mimic a live infection without causing disease. However, it is not always practical to take this approach, such as when it may not be safe to do so (e.g., for viruses that cause chronic infections such as HIV) or may not be feasible to manufacture (e.g., for viruses that do not grow well in cell culture such as HCV). In addition, it may preferable in some cases to target immune responses toward specific antigens from the pathogen, rather than the entirety of the genome. In these cases, subunit vaccines consisting of antigens purified from the pathogen or produced by recombinant DNA technology are being developed. However, highly purified proteins are typically not inherently immunogenic, as they usually lack the means to directly

Abstract. Yellow fever (YF) is a viral disease transmitted by mosquitoes and endemic mostly in South America and Africa with 20-50% fatality. All current licensed YF vaccines, including YF-Vax® (Sanofi-Pasteur, Lyon, France) and 17DD-YFV (Bio-Manguinhos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), are based on live attenuated virus produced in hens eggs and have been widely used. The YF vaccines are considered safe and highly effective. However, a recent increase in demand for YF vaccines and reports of rare cases of YF vaccine-associated fatal adverse events have provoked interest in developing a safer YF vaccine that can be easily scaled up to meet this increased global demand. To this point, we have engineered the YF virus envelope protein (YFE) and transiently expressed it in Nicotiana benthamiana as a stand-alone protein (YFE) or as fusion to the bacterial enzyme lichenase (YFE-LicKM). Immunogenicity and challenge studies in mice demonstrated that both YFE and YFE-LicKM elicited virus neutralizing (VN) antibodies
Title:Targeting the Mannose Receptor with Mannosylated Subunit Vaccines. VOLUME: 21 ISSUE: 30. Author(s):B. Sedaghat, R. Stephenson and I. Toth. Affiliation:School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences, The University of Queensland, St. Lucia, QLD, Australia.. Keywords:Dendritic cells, glycosyl, mannan, mannose receptor, peptide vaccine, targeting.. Abstract:The mannose receptor (MR) is an important component of the immune system and understanding the structural and conformational characteristics of this receptor is a key aspect of vaccine design. Improved understanding of the role of carbohydrate recognition domains 4-7 (CRDs 4-7) in recognising glycosylated ligands present on the surface of pathogens such as C.albicans, P. carinii, L. donovani, and M. tuberculosis has given new insight into MR vaccine development. Initial studies identified mannan and its derivatives to be important ligands in MR targeting, providing essential knowledge about the MR structural properties. The MR was found to ...

These viruses are named attenuated. Dwell vaccines can be unsafe when presented to those with a weak immunity (who are called immunocompromised), due to the fact in these people, the weakened virus could cause the original disease.[200] Biotechnology and genetic engineering methods are applied to generate subunit vaccines. These vaccines use only the capsid proteins with the virus. Hepatitis B vaccine can be an illustration of this sort of vaccine.[201] Subunit vaccines are safe for immunocompromised patients since they cant lead to the ailment.[202] The yellow fever virus vaccine, a Reside-attenuated strain called 17D, is probably the safest and most effective vaccine at any time created.[203 ...
