Oral immunization with attenuated Salmonella carrying a co-expression plasmid encoding the core and E2 proteins of hepatitis C virus capable of inducing cellular immune responses and neutralizing antibodies in mice.


Hepatitis C virus (HCV) core protein has long been considered an attractive candidate for inclusion in a protective vaccine. However, this protein may hamper the development of systemic immune responses because of its immune suppressive properties. We previously reported that immune responses to HCV core protein could be efficiently induced by attenuated… (More)
