[Immuno-modulating effects of eukaryotic expressing vectors of IL-12 and GM-CSF associated to DNA-based vaccination against experimental cutaneous leishmaniasis in BALB/c mouse].

Abstract : Different works of DNA based vaccination against leishmaniasis highlight the complexity of the induced immune responses to fight against the disease. In this work, we exploited the capacity of IL-12 and GMC-SF to activate immune cell mediators and effectors to induce a Th1 response, more capable of clearing the parasite. To generate these immunomodulating activities, we associated eukaryotic expressing vectors of murine IL-12 and GMC-SF to several DNA based vaccine candidates encoding to several L. (L.) major antigens, in the BALB/c mouse. When mice were challenged with a high parasitic load in the hind footpad, no additional protective effect could be generated. However, when the challenge was carried out in the inner face of the ear with a small parasitic load, the association of plasmids encoding to IL-12 and GMC-SF to DNA based vaccination, the protective effects were increased.
