Potentiation of immune response against the RESA peptides of Plasmodium falciparum by incorporating a universal T-cell epitope (CS.T3) and an immunomodulator (polytuftsin), and delivery through liposomes.

Abstract

Synthetic peptides representing repeat sequences of ring-infected erythrocyte surface antigen (RESA) of Plasmodium falciparum have shown poor immunogenicity and protection. In this study, the RESA peptides [(EENVEHDA)2 and (DDEHVEEPTVA)2] were chemically linked to a universal T-cell determinant, CS.T3, derived from the CS protein of P. falciparum… (More)
