DNA vaccination may represent an interesting strategy for early life immunization. However, in some cases, this approach has been shown to induce a tolerance rather than immunity. We have compared the efficiency of neonatal DNA or protein immunization against hepadnavirus envelope protein using the duck hepatitis B virus (DHBV) model. Three-day-old ducklings were immunized with either a plasmid encoding the DHBV pre-S/S large envelope protein (L), or a recombinant preS protein, followed by se...Expand abstract
