Effects of hydrostatic pressure on a membrane-enveloped virus: high immunogenicity of the pressure-inactivated virus.


A new approach to the preparation of antiviral vaccines relying on the inactivation of the virus particle by hydrostatic pressure is described. The enveloped virus vesicular stomatitis virus was utilized as a model; a pressure of 260 MPa applied for 12 h reduced infectivity by a factor of 10(4), and the antibodies against pressurized material were as… (More)
