DNA vaccination is an effective means of inducing both humoral and cell-mediated immunity in animal models of infectious disease. Presented here are data generated in two distinct disease models; one viral (influenza) and one bacterial (tuberculosis). Specifically, plasmid DNA encoding an influenza virus antigen (nucleoprotein; NP) and a Mycobacterium tuberculosis antigen (antigen 85; Ag85) were prepared and tested as DNA vaccines in mice. In both cases, high titer antibody responses and robust cell-mediated immune responses were induced against the respective antigens. With respect to the …
