OBJECTIVE: To compare humoral immune response by co-inoculating mice with antigen HPV16L1 virus-like particle (VLP) and HPV16L1 recombinant plasmids and then observing the neutralizing antibody activity in vitro. METHODS: C57BL/6 mice were injected intramuscularly/subcutaneously with pcDNA-L1 plasmids plus HPV16L1 VLP. Serum IgG levels were detected by ELISA, antibody neutralizing protective activities were determined by hemagglutination inhibition and HPV16L1 VLP binding inhibition assay. RESULTS: Serum antibody titers and neutralizing antibody activities were increased in HPV16L1 plasmids plus HPV16L1 VLP proteins in co-immunized mice when compared with controls. CONCLUSION: Co-inoculation of the HPV16L1 VLP protein can enhance production of neutralizing antibody activities against aimed antigen, which should be a more promising strategy for effective HPV16 prophylactic vaccine development.
