Transitory or long-lasting immunity to Leishmania major infection: the result of immunogenicity and multicomponent properties of histone DNA vaccines.


The present studies were designed to analyze the immunization against cutaneous leishmaniosis with plasmids encoding Leishmania histones either individually or genetically linked in tandem, or with cocktails encoding the four nucleosomal histones (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4).
