The most common feature for antigen-delivery systems is their particulate nature. Together with a certain depot effect, it is the particulate nature that primarily dictates whether the antigen-delivery system will be successful in inducing a certain type and strength of immune response. In this article, we will summarize recent data on particulate delivery systems for peptide and protein antigens with a main focus on lipid or polymer-based particles, all of which possess high potential as both… CONTINUE READING
