A lipoteichoic acid has recently been shown to be conserved in the majority of strains from Clostridium difficile and as such is being considered as a possible vaccine antigen. In this study we examine the candidacy of the conserved lipoteichoic acid by demonstrating that it is possible to elicit antibodies against C. difficile strains following(More)
In this study we have prepared glycoconjugates with core oligosaccharides (OS) from the lipopolysaccharide (LPS) of Neisseria meningitidis, thus avoiding the neo-epitopes of the deacylated lipid A region of the derived LPS molecule identified in our previous studies. A comprehensive investigation was performed with glycoconjugates prepared from the most(More)
