BACKGROUND Initiation and regulation of immune responses in humans involves recognition of peptides presented by human leukocyte antigen class II (HLA-II) molecules. These peptides (HLA-II T-cell epitopes) are increasingly important as research targets for the development of vaccines and immunotherapies. HLA-II peptide binding studies involve multiple(More)
BACKGROUND Protein antigens and their specific epitopes are formulation targets for epitope-based vaccines. A number of prediction servers are available for identification of peptides that bind major histocompatibility complex class I (MHC-I) molecules. The lack of standardized methodology and large number of human MHC-I molecules make the selection of(More)
Candida albicans is a pathogen commonly infecting patients who receive immunosuppressive drug therapy, long-term catheterization, or those who suffer from acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). The major factor accountable for pathogenicity of C. albicans is host immune status. Various virulence molecules, or factors, of are also responsible for the(More)
