In the present study, the poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLG) polymer was used as an adjuvant to encapsulate the chimeric protein rSAG1/2 for preparing a microparticle vaccine against Toxoplasma gondii. The resulting PLG-encapsulated rSAG1/2 (PLG-rSAG1/2) microparticles, 1.27-1.65μm in diameter, showed 72-83% entrapment efficiency. The amount of released(More)
Current development efforts of subunit vaccines against Toxoplasma gondii, the etiological agent of toxoplasmosis, have been focused mainly on tachyzoite surface antigen 1 (SAG1). Since microparticles made from poly (lactide-co-glycolide) (PLG) polymers have been developed as safe, potent adjuvants or delivery systems, we aimed to encapsulate recombinant(More)
