The malignant transformation of cells translates into a major worldwide health, social and economic burden. Efforts to define the etiology of cancer, along with the development of new therapeutic approaches to treat them, would […]
Advanced Immunization Technologies (ADITEC)
We are member of the ADITEC Consortium, a collaborative research programme that aims to accelerate the development of novel and powerful immunisation technologies for the next generation of human vaccines. Scientists from 13 countries […]
Clinical development of cancer vaccines
CyaA-based therapeutic cancer vaccines Based on our discovery that a bacterial protein, the adenylate cyclase (CyaA), binds to dendritic cells (DCs), we have developed a highly efficient vector capable of targeting a wide range […]
Therapeutic potential of mycolactone and synthetic surrogates
Whether released by bacteria infecting the skin or injected via the subcutaneous route, mycolactone was found to diffuse into the leukocytes of peripheral blood and lymphoid organs. With this distribution profile, the unique effects […]
Tumor immunity and preclinical development of cancer vaccines
Human Papillomaviruses (HPV) are the major cause of human cervical cancer. We have developed a therapeutic tumor vaccine, the CyaA-E7 vaccine, that can induce specific responses against the HPV E7 oncoprotein and eliminate E7 […]
