A chimeric glycoprotein of human respiratory syncytial virus termed FG induces T-cell mediated immunity in mice.

Abstract

Popliteal lymph node cells taken from mice vaccinated with the FG glycoprotein were exposed in vitro to respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) antigens. Proliferation to FG or RSV antigens was blocked with anti-CD4 monoclonal antibody treatment. FG-vaccinated mice developed classical late delayed type hypersensitivity (DTH) reactions when exposed to FG antigen… (More)
