A rapid immune response is required to prevent death from Anthrax, caused by Bacillus anthracis. We formulated a vaccine carrier comprised of acetalated dextran microparticles encapsulating recombinant protective antigen (rPA) and resiquimod (a toll-like receptor 7/8 agonist). We were able to protect against triplicate lethal challenge by vaccinating twice(More)

Although doxorubicin (DXR) has been on the market for many years as an anti-cancer drug, a number of serious dose-limiting toxicities hinder its widespread use. To reduce the known toxicities of soluble DXR, various liposomes have been designed including Doxil, Caelyx, and Myocet. Myocet, a non-PEGylated liposomal formulation containing DXR, was found to(More)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune, demyelinating disease of the central nervous system that can cause loss of motor function and is thought to result, in part, from chronic inflammation due to an antigen-specific T cell immune response. Current treatments suppress the immune system without antigen specificity, increasing the risks of cancer, chronic(More)
