Abstract

Mucosal surfaces are important for the induction of immunity against influenza virus. In a murine intranasal immunization model, we demonstrated that the attenuated Shigella flexneri Δasd strain 15D, carrying a DNA construct encoding the influenza virus hemagglutinin (HA), induces protective immunity against a lethal respiratory challenge with influenza A/WSN/33. Influenza virus-specific IFN-γ T cells were detected among splenocytes, and anti-HA IgG was detected in serum post-immunization, albeit at low levels. Following influenza virus challenge, an accelerated anti-HA IgA antibody response was detected in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) washings from mice vaccinated with attenuated shigella containing the HA construct. These results suggest that S. flexneri Δasd strain 15D is a promising vector for mucosal DNA vaccine immunization against influenza virus and other mucosal pathogens.
