We tested the hypothesis that intramuscular immunization with a multisubunit chlamydial vaccine candidate will induce long lasting immune responses in mice. Accordingly, groups of female C57BL/6 mice were immunized intramuscularly with Vibrio cholerae ghosts (VCG) expressing the Poring B and polymorphic membrane protein-D proteins of Chlamydia trachomatis or a control antigen. Humoral and cell-mediated immune responses were evaluated following immunization and after live chlamydial infection… CONTINUE READING
