Vaccines and Nanoparticles
"Scientists have created nanoparticles which are able to encourage the body to accept vaccines against illnesses and infections. Nanoparticles that have been fortified with immune fighting properties can help to boost the effect of vaccines, scientists are claiming.
When injected into the body at the same time as a vaccine the nanoparticles stimulate the lymph nodes, where the majority of immune system reactions originate from.
This then encourages the immune system to react quickly to infections or viruses as soon as they enter the body and therefore makes the vaccines more effective.
After successfully testing the new nanoparticles on mice, the researchers are hoping they will soon be ready for use with human vaccines." source: Healthcare Global
I found this article particularly interesting and am wondering if anyone knows of similar research being conducted in Australia?
