What is the DNA vaccine?

3 months ago

The DNA vaccine, or DNA vaccination, is a vaccination technology based on genetic engineering. In DNA vaccination a recombinant plasmid (vector) containing the gene of a specific antigen that is part of a given pathogenic agent is inserted into cells of the individual to be immunized. These cells then begin to produce the antigen that triggers the primary immune response and theoretically the individual becomes immunized against that antigen.
