Plant-derived vaccines: Technologies and applications

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The enormous progress made in plant genomics is opening the possibility of using plants as bioreactors for the production of pharmaceutical products, ranging from immunogens (single peptides to complex structures such as virus-like particles) to adjuvants, microbicides and monoclonal antibodies. This book includes 11 chapters spanning most of the issues involved in plant-based vaccine production, including intellectual property considerations and veterinary applications. In addition to the detailed description of antigen expression in different plant systems, adjuvant production and plant glycosylation of proteins are also analyzed.
