Oral immunization with a free peptide from cholera toxin: local protection and IgA production.

Abstract : It is frequently of great benefit for good protection against pathogens to elicit a local immunization. For example the importance of antibacterial as well as antitoxin local secretory IgA, for protection against cholera, has been underlined in several studies. We have already reported that oral administration of the peptide corresponding to the 50-75 sequence of cholera toxin (CT) B subunit elicits serum antibodies neutralizing CT activity. In this study we demonstrate that IgA with specificity to CT are present in intestinal secretions of mice immunized orally with the P50-75 or P30-50 peptides of CT B subunit. In addition local protection is observed in the intestine of P50-75 orally immunized mice. These results point out the potential of synthetic peptides as immunogens at the mucosal level.
