Advances in Vaccine Delivery Technologies
Vaccine adjuvants - is an ingredient of a vaccine that helps to create a stronger immunization in the patient’s body. In other words, adjuvants help vaccines work better. Some vaccines prepared from weakened or dead microbes will contain naturally occurring adjuvants and it will help the body to produce a strong protective immunization. Vaccine delivery systems are engineered technologies for the targeted delivery and/or controlled release of therapeutic agents to fight against the pathogens. Vaccination has long been used to improve immunization and extend lives. The practice of vaccine delivery has changed dramatically in the last few decades and even greater changes are anticipated in the near future. Synthetic vaccines, genomic analysis of disease and their vaccine response, structure-based antigen design, and nanotech delivery systems are just a few of the realizations of this effort. The tagged adjuvants/carrier also improves cellular and humoral immune responses against the antigen by their physio-chemical properties.
