Subunit vaccine prepared from VP1 protein of foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) types 0 and Asia 1 protected guinea pigs against FMD and also induced high levels of antibody. Liposomes have been used as a safe and potent immunological adjuvant for FMD vaccines. Vaccines prepared from inactivated virus types 0 and Asia 1 encapsulated in liposomes protected guinea pigs against challenge with homologous virus and showed good antibody response in pigs on a small scale field trial.
