Chitosan, (1-4)-2-amino-2-deoxy-beta-d-glucan, is a deacetylated form of chitin, an abundant biodegradable, positively charged natural polysaccharide. Chitosan is used for antigen delivery through mucosal barrier due to its ability to disrupt tight junctions. Here we produced new water-soluble low-molecular weight chitosan (LMW-Chi) lipid derivatives and(More)
Aspergillus fumigatus, a ubiquitous fungus, is implicated in the pathogenesis of a number of clinically different allergic diseases in man. Peptide-based immunotherapy may offer an alternative in patient care and management. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of T cell epitopes of A. fumigatus ribotoxin, Asp f 1 in inducing tolerance in mice(More)
Cellular signals leading to T helper (Th)1/Th2 shift are not well known. Here we demonstrate that Th1 possibly recognizes peptides presented by the IE molecule of MHC class II while Th2 is activated by the recognition of peptides presented by the IA molecule. BALB/c mice immunized with Asp f2 developed stable IA-restricted Th2 immune response to the 12th(More)
Muramyl peptides, immunostimulators with macrophage as a main target cell, are used for protecting mice from LPS-lethality (the experimental model of septic shock). Different protocols of pretreatment mice by muramyl peptides lead to opposite results. LPS and glycopeptides act synergistically in the induction of lethal shock, when mice receive peptides 1(More)
Aspergillus fumigatus, a ubiquitous fungus, is implicated in the pathogenesis of a number of clinically different allergic diseases in man, including allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis. Peptide-based immunotherapy may offer an alternative treatment strategy for the management of allergic disease. The objective of this study was to alter the(More)
The City Supervision Committee (CSC) has been set up in St. Petersburg to control detection, quality of diagnosis and treatment of new-onset cases of tuberculosis without destruction and bacterial discharge. The CSC members contributed to unification of diagnostic and activity status techniques, helped introduce retrospective survey of fluorograms, raise(More)
