Novel, Synthetic Peptides that Inhibit the Formation of Tight Junctions
Background Current methods of vaccination primarily rely on intramuscular, subcutaneous, and intradermal injection of antigens. These vaccination routes, while effective, require medical personnel to deliver, generate biohazards (sharps) requiring costly disposal, and cause patients pain and anxiety. This has fueled research efforts to identify “needle-free”...
