  • Project Details

    We have already identified a number of potential vaccine candidates from P. gingivalis. These identified peptides and proteins have been shown to induce protection in animal models of disease. We are currently identifying T-cell and B-cell epitopes for peptide-based vaccine approach, as well as developing recombinant protein and DNA vaccine strategies.
