  • Publication number: 20200230225
    Abstract: Compositions and methods are described for inducing an immune response against an immunogen in humans. The induced immune response is obtained by administering a heterologous prime-boost combination of an in vitro transcribed (IVT) self-replicating RNA (repRNA) and an adenovirus vector. The compositions and methods can be used to provide a protective immunity against a disease, such as a viral infection or a cancer, in humans.
