Nanorods Deliver Vaccines, Trigger Strong Immune Response

Abstract:
Gene-based vaccines, which use DNA to induce immune system cells to mount a targeted immune response, hold promise for treating and preventing cancer, but delivering DNA to the proper cells has proven difficult. Now, a multi-institutional team of collaborators has shown that DNA-bearing nanorods delivered to immune cells through the skin will trigger a strong antibody response. Nanorods may prove to be particularly useful in vaccination applications because they can be modified to carry multiple antigens as well as chemicals that stimulate the immune system to respond to antigens.
