The adult mouse model of Giardia lamblia infection serves as an excellent animal model to understand the immunological mechanisms involved in the control and clearance of Giardia infection. Little is known about the G. lamblia-specific antigens that stimulate the humoral immune response in this model of giardiasis. We analysed the secretory and systemic(More)
A vaccine against bovine mastitis was developed. The vaccine was based on inactivated, highly encapsulated Staphylococcus aureus cells; a crude extract of Staph. aureus exopolysaccharides; and inactivated unencapsulated Staph. aureus and Streptococcus spp. cells. In this study, the vaccine was evaluated in 164 cows from two commercial dairies (A and B)(More)
T-cell immune response plays an important role in controlling Giardia lamblia infections. Little is known about the G. lamblia-specific antigens that stimulate a cell-mediated immune response. The aim of the present study was to identify T-cell stimulating G. lamblia antigens. For this purpose, we generated a group of Giardia-specific T-cell hybridomas(More)
Division of Graduate Medical Sciences, for students who are traditionally underrepresented in the biomedical sciences. Our academically talented students were selected for STaRS through a highly competitive application process and have spent the summer conducting research in labs across the BU Medical Campus. We hope you enjoy learning more about their(More)
AIMS To evaluate the antibacterial and free-radical scavenging (FRS) activities of propolis collected from three different areas of Sonoran Desert in northwestern Mexico [Pueblo de Alamos (PAP), Ures (UP) and Caborca (CP)]. METHODS AND RESULTS The antibacterial and FRS activities of Sonoran propolis were determined by the broth microdilution method and(More)
