Nanoparticle vaccines can help fight zoonotic viral diseases

NewsGuard 100/100 Score

Announcing a new article publication for Zoonoses journal. Vaccines are the most promising tools for maintaining public health. Most emerging human infectious diseases are caused by viruses originating from an animal reservoir via zoonotic transmission.

Therefore, zoonotic virus spillover and spread in humans have become global health threats. Nanoparticle-based vaccines are ideal for antigen delivery, as adjuvants, and as viral structure mimics. Nanoparticles benefit vaccine design and are utilized to protect the antigen cargo, and increase the immunogenicity and efficacy.

Therefore, nanoparticle vaccines are a novel method of immunization by which optimal immune responses are elicited. The authors of this article review current approaches in the development of nanoparticle vaccines and highlight the role of nanoparticle vaccines against zoonotic viral diseases.
