Live attenuated vaccines are of great value for preventing infectious diseases. They represent a delicate compromise between sufficient colonization-mediated adaptive immunity and minimizing the risk for infection by the vaccine strain itself. Immune defects can predispose to vaccine strain infections. It has remained unclear whether vaccine safety could be(More)
Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium has been extensively exploited as live attenuated vaccines (LAV) which generally confers better protection than killed or subunit vaccines. However, many LAV are limited by their inherent ability to access systemic organs in many of the vaccinated hosts, especially those which are immunocompromised. We evaluated the(More)
Development of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium (S. Typhimurium) live attenuated vaccine carrier strain to prevent enteric infections has been a subject of intensive study. Several mutants of S. Typhimurium have been proposed as an effective live attenuated vaccine strain. Unfortunately, many such mutant strains failed to successfully complete the(More)
