Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Novel adjuvants and delivery systems for vaccines improve the quality of vaccine production by enhancing the immune response to a vaccine. Adjuvants can strengthen the immune system's response to the vaccine. Adjuvants have been traditionally used to increase the magnitude of the antibody response to a vaccine based on antibody titer or the ability to prevent infection and can guide the type of adaptive response to produce the most effective form of immunity. It is important to consider the construction of vaccine adjuvant delivery systems for both adjuvant activity and antigen delivery. In this Special Issue, we will explore prospective novel adjuvant approaches to modify innate and adaptive immune responses to ease the development of enhanced prophylactic or therapeutic vaccines. We welcome contributions to vaccine adjuvant advances, immune enhancement mechanisms, rational design, immunostimulatory molecules, emulsions, liposomes, virosomes, and polymers with functional molecules.
