A cosmid library of random fragments of Bordetella bronchiseptica genomic DNA was prepared and screened with oligonucleotides designed from the sequence of the B. pertussis dermonecrotic toxin (DNT) gene. Two cosmid clones which apparently contained the complete B. bronchiseptica DNT gene were identified, but they did not express the toxin. A 5-kb fragment(More)
Currently, no vaccine is available against hepatitis C virus (HCV), and although DNA vaccines have considerable potential, this has not been realised. Previously, the efficacy of DNA vaccines for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and HCV was shown to be enhanced by including the gene for a cytolytic protein, viz. perforin. In this study, we examined the(More)
BACKGROUND This first-in-human proof-of-concept study aimed to check whether safety and preclinical results obtained by intratumoral administration of BQ788, an endothelin receptor B (EDNRB) antagonist, can be repeated in human melanoma patients. METHODS Three patients received a single intralesional BQ788 application of 3 mg. After 3-7 days, the lesions(More)
