Abstract

Summary

Advances have been made in the development of vaccines based on synthetic peptides representing protective epitopes of the influenza virus. The study reviewed here evaluates the capacity of three epitopes in different delivery systems to induce specific immune response and protect mice against viral challenge infection. Although peptide vaccines are not in use yet, they continue to be explored as is discussed herewith.
