WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF BUILDING UP A DATABASE OF EXPERIMENTALLY
DETERMINED T CELL EPITOPES. WE FEEL THAT SUCH A DATABASE
PROVIDE DATA WHICH WOULD HELP TO UNDERSTAND AND PREDICT T CELL
EPITOPES AND MHC RESTRICTION ON THE BASIS OF SEQUENCE - IT WOULD
ALSO BE USEFUL IN THE DESIGN OF CARRIER-FREE VACCINES. THE DATA,
ONCE COLLECTED, WILL BE FREELY AVAILABLE TO MEMBERS OF THE ACEDEMIC
COMMUNITY. IF PEOPLE HAVE T CELL EPITOPE DATA THEY WOULD LIKE TO
SEND TO US, WE WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO RECEIVE IT.
COULD PEOPLE PLEASE E-MAIL DETAILS OF:

NAME, ADDRESS, AND ANY CITATIONS
THE PROTEIN CONTAINING THE EPITOPE
THE EPITOPE ITSELF
THE EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUE USED (E.G. PEPSCAN)
ANY MHC RESTRICTION
THE ANIMAL MODEL USED

    THANKS IN ANTICIPATION,
