OBJECTIVES To assess the safety and immunogenicity of two vaccines, MSP1(42)-FVO/Alhydrogel and MSP1(42)-3D7/Alhydrogel, targeting blood-stage Plasmodium falciparum parasites. DESIGN A Phase 1 open-label, dose-escalating study. SETTING Quintiles Phase 1 Services, Lenexa, Kansas between July 2004 and November 2005. PARTICIPANTS Sixty healthy(More)
In previously published studies, Saccharomyces cerevisiae recombinant protein expression systems have been employed to express the malaria parasite antigen Pfs25, a candidate transmission-blocking vaccine antigen against Plasmodium falciparum malaria. However, despite having been in two Phase 1 trials, the recombinant Pfs25 so produced (previously called(More)
Two strains of transgenic mice have been generated that secrete into their milk a malaria vaccine candidate, the 42-kDa C-terminal portion of Plasmodium falciparum merozoite surface protein 1 (MSP1(42)). One strain secretes an MSP1(42) with an amino acid sequence homologous to that of the FVO parasite line, the other an MSP1(42) where two putative N-linked(More)
As antibiotic resistance increases and the rate of antibiotic development slows, it is becoming more urgent to develop novel approaches to prevent and mitigate serious bacterial and fungal infections. Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), including those caused by Clostridium difficile, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter(More)
