Effective induction of high-titer antibodies by viral vector vaccines

A lab group from the University of Oxford discovered that a recombinant –poxvirus prime-boost immunisation regime which induces strong immunogenicity is able to cause fulminant antigen-specific antibody responses. The scientists found a simple, complement-based adjuvant to support immunogenicity even more.

Antibodies directed against a antigen of the blood-stage by this recombinant viral vector turned out to be highly effective against Plasmodium yoelii in mice and against in vitro.
