Vaccine Detail

3'-Aminomethyl Nicotine-P. aeruginosa r-Exoprotein A Conjugate Vaccine
Vaccine Information
  • Vaccine Name: 3'-Aminomethyl Nicotine-P. aeruginosa r-Exoprotein A Conjugate Vaccine
  • Target Pathogen: Cancer
  • Target Disease: Cancer
  • Type: Conjugate vaccine
  • Status: Clinical trial
  • Host Species for Licensed Use: Human
  • Host Species as Laboratory Animal Model: Human
  • Description: A hapten-carrier immunoconjugate composed of the hapten trans-3'-aminomethyl nicotine conjugated to a recombinant P. aeruginosa exoprotein A, rendered nontoxic through amino acid depletion, with potential immunostimulating activity. Upon vaccination with 3'-aminomethyl nicotine-P. aeruginosa r-exoprotein A conjugate vaccine, the immune system may produce anti-nicotine antibodies. Antibody-bound nicotine cannot pass the blood brain barrier (BBB) to activate brain nicotine receptors. Nicotine, a small organic molecule that is not immunogenic, must be haptenized and conjugated to a carrier protein, such as nontoxic recombinant P. aeruginosa exoprotein A, to induce an antibody response. Aluminium hydroxide may be used as an adjuvant for this vaccine. (NCIT_C88341).
