Researchers tout preclinical results for one-shot vaccination method

Researchers from Boston Children’s Hospital said today that they achieved strong vaccine responses in preclinical models by adding adjuvants to boost the immune response. The team’s work was published the Journal of Clinical Investigation-Insight and the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. 

Vaccines have the potential to drastically reduce infant mortality, the researchers said, but newborns often don’t respond optimally because their immune systems produce weak antibody responses. The team wrote that their work could potentially help amplify newborns’ immune response to vaccinations.
