The present invention provides vectors that contain and co-express in vivo or in vitro immunogenic polypeptides or antigens together with an OX40L polypeptide, which functions as a genetic adjuvant. Together, the immunogenic polypeptide and the OX40L polypeptide elicit an immune response in animal or human, which is greater than the immune response elicited by the immunogenic polypeptide alone. In a particular example, the invention provides vectors encoding a Rabies G immunogenic polypeptide and a canine OX40L genetic adjuvant, which vectors elicit strong immune responses in canine against rabies virus


Patent

The present invention relates generally to the fields of immunology and vaccine technology. More specifically, the present invention relates to methods for freeze-drying biological preparations, including peptides, antigens, antibodies, and especially, cells. Importantly, the disclosed methods preserve the viability, infectivity and immunogenicity of cells from the Apicomplexa phylum, the Sarcocystidae family, and in particular, cells from the Toxoplasma genus.


Patent
Merial Inc. | Date: 2017-03-29

The present invention provides in ovo injection devices, including a novel vaccine/substance conservation valve (VCV), a needle depth adjuster (NDA), and methods for selectively delivering vaccines and other substances to eggs in the context of poultry hatcheries. The valve of the present invention allows for the conditional dispensing of vaccines and other substances dependent upon the presence or absence of an egg. When an egg is present, the valve becomes activated, allowing vaccines or other substances to be injected. When an egg is absent, the valve is not activated, thus vaccines and other valuable substances are conserved. The NDA allows embryonated eggs to be more safely injected by reducing the depth of needle penetration, particularly in smaller eggs.
