New technique to identify viral vaccine targets

Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) is a common human virus that causes cold sores, can lead to brain damage and blindness, and causes some genital herpes. An effective vaccine for HSV-1 will need to stimulate responses from multiple types of immune cells, including both helper and memory T cells. To do so, scientists must first identify the antigens from the virus capable of stimulating T cells. In new research, David Koelle and colleagues, at the University of Washington, Seattle, developed a system to stimulate memory and helper T cells from HSV-1 positive patients, and then isolate those that were specifically reactive to HSV-1. This technique led to the identification of previously unidentified HSV-1 vaccine candidate genes. The researchers then successfully applied their technique to identify T cell antigens of the vaccinia virus, suggesting that it may be useful for the identification of T cell vaccine targets for many other viruses.
