Development of Core-Corona Type Polymeric Nanoparticles as an Anti-HIV-1 Vaccine
We developed a novel technology for core-corona polymeric nanoparticles having hydrophilic polymer chains with functional groups. Polystyrene nanoparticles immobilized with the mannose-specific lectin concanavalin A could efficiently capture human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) particles and gp120 antigens on their surface. Since the antigen-capturing nanoparticles were capable of inducing humoral and cellular immune responses to HIV-1, they could be developed as a mucosal vaccine against HIV-1 infection.
