Recent data showing the high incidence of typhoid fever in young children, the demonstration of safety and efficacy of a Vi conjugate for this age group, the safety and similar immunogenicity in infants when administrated concurrently with EPI vaccines, together with the interests of manufacturers and investigators in studying such conjugate vaccines prompted us to prepare a human IgG anti-Vi standard to facilitate this work. Volunteers were injected with an investigational Vi-recombinant Pseudomonas aeruginosa exoprotein A (Vi-. rEPA) conjugate vaccine. Plasmas with the highest levels of IgG anti-Vi were pooled. The IgG anti-Vi content of this preparation, assayed by precipitin analysis with purified Vi, was 33. μg/ml. Accordingly, the estimated IgG anti-Vi protective level of 3.5 ELISA unit/ml, derived from our efficacy trial of Vi-rEPA in 2-5 years old children, is equivalent to 4.3. μg/ml. This reagent is suitable for comparison of immune response of Vi conjugate vaccines or for other purposes requiring anti-Vi measurement. © 2013 .

Opsonophagocytic assays (OPAs) are routinely used for assessing the immunogenicity of pneumococcal vaccines, with OPA data often utilized for licensure of new vaccine formulations. However, no reference serum for pneumococcal OPAs is available, making evaluation of data among different laboratories difficult. This international collaboration was initiated to: 1) assign consensus opsonic indexes (OIs) to Pneumococcal Reference Serum Lot 007sp (007sp) and a panel of calibration sera; and 2) determine if normalization with 007sp decreases the OPA variability among laboratories.To meet these goals, six participating laboratories tested a panel of sera in five runs for 13 serotypes. For each serum, consensus OIs were obtained using a mixed effects ANOVA model. For the calibration sera, normalized consensus values were also determined based on 007sp.For each serotype, the overall reduction in inter-laboratory variability was calculated by comparing the coefficients of variation of the unadjusted and the normalized values. Normalization of the results substantially reduced the inter-laboratory variability, ranging from a 15% reduction in variability for serotype 9V to 64% for serotype 7F. Normalization also increased the proportion of data within 2-fold of the consensus value from approximately 70% (average of all serotypes) to >90%.Based on the data obtained in this study, Pneumococcal Reference Standard Lot 007sp will likely be a useful reagent for normalizing pneumococcal OPA results from different laboratories. The data also support the use of the 16 FDA OPA calibration sera as part of the initial evaluation of new assays or periodic assessment of established assays.

Background: The current influenza pandemic calls for a safe and effective vaccine. We assessed the safety and immunogenicity of eight formulations of 2009 pandemic influenza A H1N1 vaccine produced by ten Chinese manufacturers. Methods: In this multicentre, double-blind, randomised trial, 12 691 people aged 3 years or older were recruited in ten centres in China. In each centre, participants were stratified by age and randomly assigned by a random number table to receive one of several vaccine formulations or placebo. The study assessed eight formulations: split-virion formulation containing 7·5 μg, 15 μg, or 30 μg haemagglutinin per dose, with or without aluminium hydroxide adjuvant, and whole-virion formulation containing 5 μg or 10 μg haemagglutinin per dose, with adjuvant. All formulations were produced from the reassortant strain X-179A (A/California/07/2009-A/PR/8/34). We analysed the safety (adverse events), immunogenicity (geometric mean titre [GMT] of haemagglutination inhibition antibody), and seroprotection (GMT ≥1:40) of the formulations. Analysis was by per protocol. Two sites registered their trial with, numbers NCT00956111 and NCT00975572. The other eight studies were registered with the State Food and Drug Administration of China. Findings: 12 691 participants received the first dose on day 0, and 12 348 participants received the second dose on day 21. The seroprotection rate 21 days after the first dose of vaccine ranged from 69·5% (95% CI 65·9-72·8) for the 7·5 μg adjuvant split-virion formulation to 92·8% (91·9-93·6) for the 30 μg non-adjuvant split-virion formulation. The seroprotection rate was 86·5% (796 of 920; 84·1-88·7) in recipients of one dose of the 7·5 μg non-adjuvant split-virion vaccine compared with 9·8% (140 of 1432; 8·3-11·4) in recipients of placebo (p<0·0001). One dose of the 7·5 μg non-adjuvant split-virion vaccine induced seroprotection in 178 of 232 children (aged 3 years to <12 years; 76·7%, 70·7-82·0), 211 of 218 adolescents (12 years to <18 years; 96·8%, 93·5-98·7), 289 of 323 adults (18-60 years; 89·5%, 85·6-92·6), and 118 of 147 adults older than 60 years (80·3%, 72·9-86·4), meeting the European Union's licensure criteria for seroprotection in all age-groups. In children, a second dose of the 7·5 μg formulation increased the seroprotection rate to 97·7% (215 of 220, 94·8-99·3). Adverse reactions were mostly mild or moderate, and self-limited. Severe adverse effects occurred in 69 (0·6%, 0·5-0·8) recipients of vaccine compared with one recipient (0·1%, 0-0·2) of placebo. The most common severe adverse reaction was fever, which occurred in 25 (0·22%; 0·14-0·33) recipients of vaccine after the first dose and four (0·04%; 0·01-0·09) recipients of vaccine after the second dose compared with no recipients of placebo after either dose. Interpretation: One dose of non-adjuvant split-virion vaccine containing 7·5 μg haemagglutinin could be promoted as the formulation of choice against 2009 pandemic influenza A H1N1 for people aged 12 years or older. In children (aged <12 years), two 7·5 μg doses might be needed.

Effective tuberculosis (TB) vaccine should target tubercle bacilli with various metabolic states and confer long-term protective immunity. In this study, we constructed a novel multi-stage TB subunit vaccine based on fusion protein ESAT6-Ag85B-MPT64(190-198)-Mtb8.4-HspX (LT69 for short) which combined early expressed antigens and latency-associated antigen. The fusion protein was mixed with an adjuvant being composed of N, N-dimethyl-N, N-dioctadecylammonium bromide (DDA) and polyriboinosinic polyribocytidylic acid (PolyI:C) to construct subunit vaccine, whose immunogenicity and protective ability were evaluated in C57BL/6 mice. The results showed that LT69 had strong immunogenicity and high protective effect against Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis) H37Rv aerosol challenge. Low-dose (2 g) of LT69 generated long-term immune memory responses and provided effective protection, which was even higher than traditional vaccine BCG did at 30 weeks post the last vaccination. In conclusion, multistage subunit vaccine LT69 showed high and long-term protection against M. tuberculosis infection in mice, whose effect could be enhanced by using a relative low dosage of antigen.

Objective: To isolate and identify enterovirus 71(EV71) Lanzhou01 strain, analyze its biological characteristics and lay a foundation of screening candidate virus strain of EV71 vaccine. Methods: EV71 Lanzhou01 strain was isolated from the fecal specimens of patients with hand-foot-and mouth disease in Lanzhou City, China for plaque cloning and subculture, then determined for specificity by RT-PCR and for virulence by Vero cell methyl cellulose plaque method. The VP1 gene of the isolated strain was cloned and sequenced, the virulence was determined, and the morphology was observed by scanning electron microscopy. The strain was inoculated to Vero cells at various MOIs, and the CPEs were observed, based on which a virus proliferation curve was plotted. The isolated strain was subcultured continuously and analyzed for VP1 gene and amino acid sequences to evaluate the genetic stability. Results: A isolated strain was obtained by subculture in cells and plaque cloning, of which the RT-PCR product showed a specific band at length of about 250 bp on 1% agarose gel electrophoretic profile. The strain was identified as EV71 of C4 subtype by VP1 gene sequencing and phylogenetic analysis, of which the homologies of nucleotides to the isolated EV71 strains in other regions including Zhejiang and Shenzhen were not less than 99%. The virus particles under electron microscope were in spherical forms, at diameters of 20-30 nm. The strain caused typical CPE of Vero cells, of which the virulence was 6. 8 LgPFU/ml. After subculture in Vero cells for 30 passages, the nucleotide homologies of VP1 gene of various passages were more than 99. 6%. However, no significant variation of amino acid sequence or significant change of virulence was observed. Conclusions: An EV71 strain with good biological characteristics was isolated, which laid a foundation of developing inactivated vaccine and screening candidate vaccine virus strain.
