Therapeutic DNA Vaccine for Chronic Hepatitis B

 

Description

The present invention provides a therapeutic DNA vaccine and vaccine treatment method for chronic hepatitis B. A therapeutic DNA vaccine, HB-100, is capable of inducing T helper type1 (Th1) and cellular immune responses that are known to be required for resolution of chronic hepatitis B. HB-100 comprises 1) an efficient expression vector, 2) Hepatitis B Virus nucleotide sequences encoding most HBV antigens to induce polyclonal, multi-epitope specific T cell immune responses, 3) a genetically engineered cytokine Interleukin-12 to induce strong Th1 and cellular immune responses. The efficacy rate of combination therapy with lamivudine and HB-100 can reach more than 50%, whereas the efficacy of lamivudine alone was previously reported to be less than 20%.

Benefits and Applications

The invention can be used for the therapy of chronic hepatitis B

This invention comprises a specific immunotherapeutic strategy that is aimed to cure chronic hepatitis B patients by induced HBV-specific immune responses

Therefore, this strategy can be applied for the development of "immunotherapeutic vaccines" for other serious diseases like AIDS, chronic hepatitis C, TB, etc.
