Antigen-specific enhancement of natural human IgG antibodies to phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate, cholesterol, and lipid A by a liposomal vaccine containing lipid A.

Abstract

Natural IgG antibodies (NA) to lipids are ubiquitously distributed in sera of healthy humans and are believed to serve beneficial functions. Although NA to lipids generally exhibit germ line or near germ line binding specificities, the antibodies commonly increase transiently in the acute phases of most, if not all, infectious diseases and may serve as a… (More)
