Virus specific memory T cell responses in H5N1 avian influenza virus infected patients

Lead Research Organisation: University of Oxford
Department Name: Unknown

Abstract

Abstracts are not currently available in GtR for all funded research. This is normally because the abstract was not required at the time of proposal submission, but may be because it included sensitive information such as personal details.

Technical Summary

The threat of H5N1 avian influenza infection in humans has become a serious concern. In this study we intend to measure the H5N1 avian influenza virus specific T cell responses and cross reactive T memory cell responses in both acute and convalescent patients in Vietnam. We will monitor the functional changes in T cell memory pools longitudinally, and to study if the quality of the dominant T cell responses has an impact in clinical outcome of H5N1 human infection. We will also examine T cell responses in people who have been exposed to avian influenza virus but who have apparently been not ill, looking for evidence of subclinical infection.

Results and Impact The Vice-Premier of the People's Republic of China, Liu Yandong, has visited Oxford to witness the signing and launching of Chinese Academy of Medical Science Oxford Institute, which builds on Center for Translational Immunology and will expand and develop existing successful collaboration between the two organisation and countries. Combining the strength of both partners-with Oxford offering a world class environment and training, and China exceptional researchers and vision-the institute will deliver outstanding science and help to develop innovative medicines to tackle infectious disease and cancer.

Madam Liu also witnessed the signing of MD/D.Phil scholarship program by Chinese scholarship council, Chinese Academy of Medical Science/ Peking Union Medical school and University of Oxford, the purpose of this program is to train next generation clinical scientists.

The founding directors for this new joint Institute are: Professor Xuetao Cao (CAMS) and Professor Tao Dong (Oxford)
