[ 1 ] - Incorporation of T-cell epitopes from tetanus and diphtheria toxoids into in-silico-designed hypoallergenic vaccine may enhance the protective immune response against allergens
Objective(s): New generation of allergy vaccines is capable of promoting the development of protective IgG and blocking the functionality of allergen-specific IgE. We incorporated universal and powerful T-cell epitopes from tetanus and diphtheria toxoids (TD epitope) into recombinant Che a 2, the well-known allergic profilin of Chenopodium album, to determine its immun...
[ 2 ] - Human platelet antigens polymorphisms: Association to primary immune thrombocytopenia in the Iranian patients
Background: Human platelet antigens (HPAs) are part of platelet GP complexes have the potential to contribute to the autoantibody production. Moreover, these antigens demonstrate different patterns of distribution on different ethnic groups and variation in some types of diseases. This study was objected to determine the incidence of HPA-1 to -5 and -15 polymorphisms in the Iranians suffering f...
