There is an urgent need for a better understanding of adaptive immunity to Burkholderia pseudomallei, the causative agent of melioidosis that is frequently associated with sepsis or death in patients in Southeast Asia and Northern Australia. The imperative to identify vaccine targets is driven both by the public health agenda in these regions and biological(More)
BACKGROUND Melioidosis is an increasingly recognised cause of sepsis and death across South East Asia and Northern Australia, caused by the bacterium Burkholderia pseudomallei. Risk factors include diabetes, alcoholism and renal disease, and a vaccine targeting at-risk populations is urgently required. A better understanding of the protective immune(More)
BACKGROUND Melioidosis, caused by the flagellated bacterium Burkholderia pseudomallei, is a life-threatening and increasingly recognized emerging disease. Toll-like receptor (TLR) 5 is a germline-encoded pattern recognition receptor to bacterial flagellin. We evaluated the association of a nonsense TLR5 genetic variant that truncates the receptor with(More)
NC37 cells containing the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) genome do not express the viral glycoprotein-350 (gp350) on the cell surface. Despite being a cancer cell line, NC37 cells show resistance to natural killer (NK) cell cytotoxicity by the standard chromium ((51)Cr) release assay (CRA). EBV-gp350 has been identified as a ligand for antibody dependent(More)
