3 advantages of antigen encapsulation

Research into vaccines has recently been focussed on enhancing the immune response by encapsulating antigens in nano- and micro-particles. There are 3 main advantages of antigen encapsulation: 1. The particles prevent antigen degradation 2. The particles facilitate the ingestion of chemical agents into antigen-presenting cells 3. The particles can be engineered to carry adjuvants In line with these advantages, biomedical …
