Preparation, characterization and in vivo evaluation of alginate-coated chitosan and trimethylchitosan nanoparticles loaded with PR8 influenza virus for nasal immunization.

Abstract For efficient mucosal vaccine delivery, nanoparticulate antigens are better taken by microfold cells in the nasal associated lymphoid tissue and also dendritic cells. Nanoparticles based on polymers such as chitosan (CHT) and its water soluble derivative, trimethylchitosan (TMC), could be successfully used as carrier/adjuvant for this purpose. Sodium […]
