    Immunostimulators, known also as adjuvants, are added to vaccines to accelerate, extend or amplify the specific immune reaction to a specific antigen. One well known class of immunomodulating compounds is based on muramylpeptides which are fragments of peptidoglycans, natural polymers that build...

    This article focuses on the ability of dendritic molecules to interact with nucleic acids and hence deliver them into cells. Dendritic molecules have branched structures which are made by an iterative, layer-by-layer synthesis. The control applied in their synthesis means that dendrimers are...

    Polyethyleneimine (PEI) has been widely used in gene delivery systems because of its outstanding ability to promote DNA condensation and endosome escape. However, its use for the introduction of foreign DNA into host cells is compromised by high cytotoxicity and serum reactivity. In this study...

    Internalization of peptides by antigen presenting cells is crucial for the initiation of the adaptive immune response. Mannosylation has been demonstrated to enhance antigen uptake through mannose receptors, leading to improved immune responses. In this study we test the effect of surface...

    Purpose: To investigate the vaccine effect of a replication-defective recombinant adenovirus 5 (rAd5)-based nanocomplex with chitooligosaccharides (Oligo) and mannosylated polyethyleneimine-triethyleneglycol (mPEI) as adjuvants for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Methods: Physical...

    DNA therapy for cancer requires efficient, selective and safe DNA delivery systems. Compared with other non-viral methods such as lipid or polymer-based DNA delivery vectors, peptide-based DNA delivery systems are biocompatible and biodegradable, which leads to lower immunogenicity and lower...

    While mannosylation targets antigens to mannose receptors on dendritic cells (DC), the resultant immune response is suboptimal. We hypothesized that the addition of toll-like receptor (TLR) ligands would enhance the DC response to mannosylated antigens. Cryptococcus neoformans mannoproteins (MP)...

    MFECP1 is a mannosylated antibody–enzyme fusion protein used in antibody-directed enzyme prodrug therapy (ADEPT). The antibody selectively targets tumor cells and the targeted enzyme converts a prodrug into a toxic drug. MFECP1 is obtained from expression in the yeast Pichia pastoris and...

    Non-viral gene delivery systems present an attractive alternative to viruses due to a reduced immune response compared to viral vectors and ease of manufacture. However their clinical use is limited by their relatively low efficiency and toxic effects in non-target tissues. These limitations can...
