Vaccination has been extensively used to prevent, eradicate and control infectious diseases. However, the development and implementation of new vaccines remains prohibitively expensive for middle and low income countries where such measures are surely needed most. The production of plant-based vaccines provides a promising alternative to create affordable biological products. In the past decade, a growing number of research groups worldwide have studied plant expression and parenteral or oral… 
Recent advances in plant derived vaccine antigens against human infectious diseases
This review covers the recent advances of plant derived vaccine antigens for the prevention of human infectious diseases and focuses on the current methods.
Edible Vaccine-A Future Of Facile Immunization
Edible vaccine is a novel, yet rapidly developing technology and holds the potential to be the new face of modern pharmaceuticals.
Plant-Based Vaccines: Production and Challenges
The existing conventional methods as well as the development efforts by researchers in order to improve the production of plant-based vaccines were reviewed and several challenges encountered during and after the production process were discussed.
Edible Vaccines: Promises and Challenges
The main challenge faced by edible vaccine is its acceptance by the population so that it is necessary to make aware the society about its use and benefits.
Hairy roots as a vaccine production and delivery system.
Hairy root cultures, generated from edible plants and producing target antigens, provide a potential approach for the development of vaccines for oral delivery with no protein extraction and purification costs and the active biomolecule is protected by the plant cell wall during passage through the upper gastrointestinal tract.
A Comprehensive Review on Edible Vaccine
A New approach for vaccine delivery Antigen is the use of inexpensive of oral vaccines. Is ideal for edible vaccination since it grows quickly and has a lot of nutrients that improve the immune
Immunostimulant Effect of Different Fractions of Nigella sativa L. Seeds against Rabies Vaccine
The results revealed that both methanol and volatile oil fractions of Nigella sativa L. seeds can improve the immune response against rabies vaccine save and suggested that they could be used as an alternative adjuvant to alum in rabiesvaccine.
Different applications of virus‐like particles in biology and medicine: Vaccination and delivery systems
This paper describes VLP production in different systems as well as its applications in biology and medicine, and describes VLPs and viral particles applied for different functions such as gene therapy, vaccination, nanotechnology, and diagnostics.
Regeneration and Transformation of Gene Encoding the Hemagglutinin Antigen of the H5N1 Virus in Frond of Duckweed (Spirodela polyrhiza L.)
Results have shown that the culture medium for S. polyrhiza duckweed is Hutner medium with reduced mineral concentration ½ (H/2) supplemented with 10g/l sucrose at pH 6.5 appropriate for the best growth and development of duckweed.


Plant-based vaccines.
Plant-based vaccines: unique advantages
Transgenic plants for vaccine production: expectations and limitations.
Oral immunization: an update
Improvements in antigen-delivery systems, the development of adjuvants that are safe for mucosal application in humans, use of live-attenuated vaccines and microbial vectors, and production of certain vaccines in plant expression systems are likely to contribute to the broader use of oral vaccines in the future.
Immunogenicity in humans of a recombinant bacterial antigen delivered in a transgenic potato
The present study was conducted as a proof of principle to determine if humans would also develop a serum and/or mucosal immune response to an antigen delivered in an uncooked foodstuff.
A plant‐produced influenza subunit vaccine protects ferrets against virus challenge
Given the recent emergence of new strains with pandemic potential, and some limitations of the current production systems, there is a need for new approaches for vaccine development.
