Figure 1: fdOV A 2 5 7 - 2 6 4 administration is able to trigger DTH. Mice were sensitized by one injection of 50  𝜇 g of cytotoxic OV A 2 5 7 - 2 6 4 (SIINFEKL) peptide and 140  𝜇 g T helper HBV c 1 2 8 - 1 4 0 (TPPAYRPPNAPIL) peptide from hepatitis B virus core antigen, emulsified with incomplete Freund’s adjuvant. Ten days after sensitization, DTH was performed by injecting into the right footpad fdOV A 2 5 7 - 2 6 4 , fdwt, the synthetic OV A 2 5 7 - 2 6 4 peptide (pepOVA), or soluble ovalbumin. 10–48 hours later the area of swelling was measured using a caliper. (a) Curve response of all mice analyzed. (b) Values at 30 hours of mean thickness ± SD of the different mice groups challenged with the antigens indicated in the abscissa. The 𝑃 -values were calculated by comparing each group with the fdOV A 2 5 7 - 2 6 4 challenged group.
