The incorporation of lipids into peptide vaccines to stimulate the immune system
What is it about?
An outstanding and highly cited review into the use of lipids to stimulate the immune system to mount immune responses against peptide-based vaccines.
Why is it important?
We need new vaccines, and lipid-based adjuvants have proven to be extremely efficient at stimulating various types of immune responses including antibodies and cytotoxic lymphocytes. Further, when combined with peptide antigens, lipid-based adjuvants can be readily incorporated into the vaccine during the routine synthetic processes.
