A major obstacle to successful oral vaccination is the lack of antigen delivery systems that are both safe and highly efficient. Conventional replication-incompetent adenoviral vectors, derived from human adenoviruses of subgroup C, are poorly efficient in delivering genetic material to differentiated intestinal epithelia. To date, 51 human adenovirus(More)
Different subsets of dendritic cells (DC) elicit qualitatively different immune responses. In mice, two lymphoid tissue-resident subsets, CD8α(+) and CD8α(-), have been implicated in the induction of T helper 1 (Th1) or Th2 responses, respectively. Moreover, CD8α(+) DC appear to play a major role in priming CD8(+) T lymphocyte responses to viral antigens in(More)
The evaluation of vaccine strategies in animal models is essential for the development of a vaccine against HIV. In efficacy trials conducted in non-human primate models of AIDS, vaccines based on adenoviruses compared favourably with other vaccine vectors. To determine whether this strategy could be transposed to another animal model, and by extension, to(More)
Early detection of osteoarthritis in horses represents a challenge for equine practitioners. Several biological markers have been implicated in the pathological processes involved in articular cartilage destruction. To further document cartilage matrix proteases production, synovial fluid was collected from 14 horses (90 joints) before they were subjected(More)
