Abstract
IT IS PROPOSED TO PURIFY THE TWO ENVELOPE GLYCOPROTEINS, HN AND F, FROM HUMAN PARAINFLUENZA TYPE 3 (PI3) VIRUS BY AFFINITY CHROMATOGRAPHY USING SPECIFIC MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES AND TO INCORPORATE THEM INTO LIPID VESICLES. THE EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH INVOLVES IMMOBILIZATION OF SPECIFIC MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY ON A SEPHAROSE 4B MATRIX. PURIFIED VIRUS OR INFECTED CELLS WILL BE USED AS THE SOURCE OF ANTIGENS FOR ADSORPTION AND PURIFICATION OF SPECIFIC GLYCOPROTEINS THROUGH AFFINITY COLUMNS. THE TWO PURIFIED ANTIGENS WILL BE INCORPORATED IN DEFINED PROPORTIONS INTO LIPID VESICLES. THIS RESEARCH WILL FACILITATE THE DEVELOPMENT OF MORE EFFECTIVE VACCINES AND WILL LEAD TO A PHASE II PROPOSAL IN WHICH THE EFFICACY OF THE RECONSTITUTED GLYCOPROTEIN-CONTAINING VESICLES WILL BE EVALUATED AS A VACCINE IN EXPERIMENTAL ANIMALS.
