Biodefense and Special Pathogen Vaccines in Development

Biodefense and Special Pathogen Vaccines in Development

Vaccine Development Gerald R. Kovacs, Ph.D. Scientific Director Advanced BioScience Laboratories Maryland, USA 1 Vaccine design and development Vaccines work by mimicking disease agents and stimulating the immune system to build up defenses against them 2 History of Vaccines 1798 - Edward Jenner noted: Smallpox and Cowpox: Milkmaids frequently contracted cowpox which caused lesions similar to that smallpox

Milkmaids who had cowpox almost never got smallpox Jenners experiment: Collected pus from cowpox sores Injected cowpox pus into boy named James Phipps Then injected Phipps with pus from smallpox sores Phipps did not contract smallpox First to introduce large scale, systematic immunization against smallpox 3 How do vaccines work? Live attenuated virus Carrier vaccines

Antigen presentation DNA vaccines T-helper cell Antigen presentation Killer T cell Non-infectious vaccines B cell: antibodies (neutralize & bridge) By inducing adaptive immunity & memory! 4 Vaccine Development IND
