Modulation of DC subsets in skin after Gene Gun adminstration of immuno-modulatory agentspreclinical study dataset
Studies have continued and data obtained on the effects of biolistic (Gene Gun) delivery of vectors engineered to express distinct chemokines at the local skin site of mice. In particular, attention has been focussed on the recruitment of distinct subsets of DC to skin. This work, which is being performed in collaboration with PowderMed, a former SME now owned by Pfizer, may lead to the development of more targeted strategies to induce distinct T cell responses using this technology. A publication has resulted from this work.
