Human immune responses to Burkholderia pseudomallei characterized by protein microarray analysis.
BACKGROUND: We aimed to determine the antibody and T cell responses to Burkholderia pseudomallei of humans to select candidate vaccine antigens. METHODS: For antibody profiling, a protein microarray of 154 B. pseudomallei proteins was probed with plasma from 108 healthy individuals and 72 recovered patients. Blood from 20 of the healthy and 30 of the recovered individuals was also obtained for T cell assays. RESULTS: Twenty-seven proteins distinctively reacted with human plasma following env...Expand abstract
