Gene gun intradermal DNA immunization followed by boosting with modified vaccinia virus Ankara: enhanced CD8+ T cell immunogenicity and protective efficacy in the influenza and malaria models.

Abstract:

In influenza and malaria, CD8+ T cells play an important role in protective immunity in mice. An immunization strategy consisting of DNA priming followed by boosting with recombinant modified vaccinia virus Ankara (MVA) induces complete protection, associated with high levels of CD8+ T cells, against Plasmodium berghei sporozoite challenge in mice. Intradermal delivery of DNA with a gene gun requires smaller amounts of DNA than intramuscular injection, in order to induce similar levels of imm...
