Abstract

We studied the induction of antigen-specific IgA memory B cells (B(M)) in volunteers who received live attenuated Shigella flexneri 2a vaccines. Subjects ingested a single oral dose of 10(7), 10(8) or 10(9) CFU of S. flexneri 2a with deletions in guaBA (CVD 1204) or in guaBA, set and sen (CVD 1208). Antigen-specific serum and stool antibody responses to LPS and Ipa B were measured on days 0, 7, 14, 28 and 42. IgA B(M) cells specific to LPS, Ipa B and total IgA were assessed on days 0 and 28. We show the induction of significant LPS-specific IgA B(M) cells in anti-LPS IgA seroresponders. Positive correlations were found between anti-LPS IgA B(M) cells and anti-LPS IgA in serum and stool; IgA B(M) cell responses to IpaB were also observed. These B(M) cell responses are likely play an important role in modulating the magnitude and longevity of the humoral response.
