Development and Testing of Novel Liposome Formulations of AntiMicrobial Agents for Use in Treating Fungal and bacterial Infections of Plants

To facilitate in the development and testing of novel liposome formulations of antimicrobial agents to be used in treating fungal and bacterial infections of plants which are commercially important to California's economy (e.g., grapes and orchids).

Development of a Universal Liposomal Influenza Vaccine

To test combination vaccine regimens against two strains of influenza virus, one of which is H5NI, or the avian or bird flu. The work will feature the immunization of mice with liposomes carrying experimental M2e protein in bacteria. Successful trials could provide an alternative, effective method for producing a broadly protective influenza virus vaccine.

Scale-up of Influenza Liposomal Universal Vaccine

1. To develop the methods for scaling-up Influenza M2e liposomes from 2ml to 20ml (40 doses to 400 doses). 2. To compare the efficacy of influenza M2e liposomes prepared by scaled-up vs probe sonication methods in the mouse influenza infection model.

Development of a Vaccine to Prevent Aspergillosis in Poultry

Objective 1: Compare the protective efficacy of liposomal vaccines containing one, two or three A. fumigatus proteins and the TLR4 adjuvant Monophosphoryl Lipid A in a murine model of pulmonary aspergillosis. Objective 2: Using the most protective A. fumigatus proteins from Objective 1, different adjuvants will be incorporated into the liposomal vaccine to further optimize the protection in the murine pulmonary aspergillosis model. Objective 3: The optimized A. fumigatus vaccine will be tested in chickens to determine if it is protective in an avian species.

Combination Therapy for Avian and Mammalian Pulmonary Aspergillosis using a Liposomal Aspergillus Protein Vaccine and Anti-Fungal Drugs

Objective 1- Evaluate both the Aspergillus protein vaccine and drug treatment with a non-toxic lipid formulation of the antifungal drug, amphotericin B, in Aspergillus infected mice to determine how effective these approaches are when used alone or in combination; Objective 2: Establish a pulmonary aspergillosis infection in immunosuppressed adult chickens for subsequent testing of the vaccine and the antifungal drug since immunosuppressed adult chickens are very susceptible to aspergillosis; Objective 3: Evaluate both the Aspergillus protein vaccine and drug treatment with a non-toxic lipid formulation of the antifungal drug, amphotericin B, in Aspergillus infected chickens to determine how effective these approaches are when used alone or in combination.

Use of Liposomes as a Vehicle to Deliver Fungicidal Agents for Treatment of Fungal Plant Infections

To develop a non-toxic system for treating fungal plant infections caused by pathogens such as Fusarium, Phytophthora, and Botrytis. The approach involves forumulation of hydrophobic antifungal agents, e.g., nystatin, into small, water soluble,unilamellar liposomes and applying it to plants through the leaves, stems or roots.

Combination liposomal and DNA vaccine technologies for development of non-infections influenza vaccines for protecting poultry

1. To determine if the liposomal M2c vaccine will elicit humoral and/or cellular immune responses to influenza viruses H1N1 and H5N9 in chickens. 2. To examine the effect of combining the plasmid DNA NP vaccine with the liposomal M2e vaccine on the immune response of chickens to these conserved influenza proteins. 3. To determine the duration of the immune responses to H1N1 and H5N9 virus following different immunization regimens with DNA NP and liposomal M2e.

Optimization of a Liposomal Avian Influenza Virus (AIV) Vaccine for Chickens and Mice Using Different TLR Adjuvants

Specific Aim 1: To compare the immune stimulating properties of L-M2e-HD vaccines containing different TLR agonists (TLR2 or TLR7) in MHC distinct strains of mice and chickens. Specific Aim 2: To compare the efficacy of L-M2e-HD vaccine containing the optimized TLR adjuvant, and NP plasmid vaccine, used alone or in combination, in MHC distinct strains of mice and chickens.

Effects of Botanicals on Growth and Induction of Apoptosis in Human Prostate Cancer Cell Lines

To characterize the ability of botanicals such as saw palmetto to inhibit the growth of prostate cancer cells that mimic the initial and advanced states of prostate carcinoma in vitro. The effects of botanicals on growth, induction of apoptosis and modulation will also be determined.
