Pulmonary vaccination is a promising immunization route. However, there still remains a crucial need to characterize the different parameters affecting the efficacy of inhaled vaccination. This study aimed at assessing the impact of antigen distribution within the respiratory tract on the immune response to a monovalent A/Panama/2007/99 H3N2 influenza split(More)
BACKGROUND Unprecedented spread between birds and mammals of highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses (HPAI) of the H5N1 subtype has resulted in hundreds of human infections with a high fatality rate. This has highlighted the urgent need for the development of H5N1 vaccines that can be produced rapidly and in sufficient quantities. Potential pandemic(More)
The immunogenicity and protective efficacy of a candidate tetravalent dengue virus purified inactivated vaccine (TDENV PIV) formulated with alum or an Adjuvant System (AS01, AS03 tested at three different dose levels, or AS04) was evaluated in a 0, 1-month vaccination schedule in rhesus macaques. One month after dose 2, all adjuvanted formulations elicited(More)
This paper describes the conditions of preparation of poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (PCL) microparticles with a mean size between 5 and 10 microm, obtained by a double emulsion-solvent evaporation technique, suitable for oral vaccine delivery. Bovine serum albumin (BSA) was used as water-soluble model antigen for encapsulation. Different parameters influencing(More)
Microparticles were produced by spray-drying from a high molecular weight polylactide (PLA R207) for the development of long-lasting controlled release systems of vaccines, which may be designed to obviate the need for booster doses. The current investigation considered the effect of both technological parameters (inlet air temperature and spray rate of(More)
Vaccination is considered to be one of the most effective tools to decrease morbidity as well as mortality caused by influenza viruses. For the prevention of seasonal influenza, Fluarix and FluLaval have been marketed since 1987 and 1992, respectively. Both vaccines have consistently been shown to meet or exceed the regulatory criteria for immunogenicity(More)
