Evaluation of microencapsulation as an improved vaccination strategy against brucellosis

Arenas Gamboa, Angela Maria 15 May 2009 (has links)
Brucellosis is an important zoonotic disease of nearly worldwide distribution. Despite the availability of live vaccine strains for bovine (S19, RB51) and small ruminants (Rev 1), these vaccines have several drawbacks including residual virulence for animals and humans. Safe and efficacious immunization systems are therefore needed to overcome these disadvantages. Brucella melitensis and Brucella abortus mutants in the luxR gene were generated and investigated for theri potential use as improve vaccine candidates. Immunization with a sustained release vehicle to enhance vaccination efficacy was evaluated utilizing the live mutants in encapsulated alginate microspheres containing a non-immunogenic eggshell precursor protein of the parasite Fasciola hepatica (Vitelline protein B, VpB). BALB/c mice were immunized with either encapsulated or nonencapsulated vaccine candidates to evaluate immunogenicity, safety and protective efficacy. The results suggest that luxR mutants, are attenuated in the mouse and macrophage model and appear good and safe vaccine candidates when the immunogen is given in a microencapsulated format. We were also able to demonstrate the utility of microencapsulation in oral delivery by increasing vaccine performance of current licensed vaccine strains in a natural host, the Red Deer. Together, these results suggest that microencapsulation of live Brucella produces an enhanced delivery vaccine system against brucellosis increasing the efficacy of poorly-performing nonencapsulated vaccine candidates.

Microencapsulation of protein with EUDRAGIT S 100 polymer

Li, Dan January 2005 (has links)
Lactose intolerance is a common and inconvenient medical condition and can cause severe discomfort. People who experience lactose intolerance often take lactase enzyme supplements when they wish to consume dairy products. As a consequence, they normally consume dairy products that are rendered lactose free or else a lactase enzyme supplement is taken concurrently. Normally, these are pills or tablets that dissolve and release the enzyme in the stomach. However, the enzyme may be denatured in the low pH conditions of stomach. Hence, a higher dose is required to ensure that an effective concentration can survive and pass into the small intestine - the site of the enzyme ' s physiological action. This problem is being addressed by microencapsulation methods : surrounding the enzyme with protective materials in the form of small particles. These protect the enzyme in the stomach and allow release in the small intestine. The goal of this research was to investigate an appropriate microencapsulation method for this purpose. An oil - in - oil solvent evaporation method was used to produce microparticles containing BSA protein with a EUDRAGIT S 100 - methacrylic acid and methyl methacrylate copolymer. BSA was used as a cost - effective surrogate for lactase during the research. Sonification was employed during the emulsification step. The microparticles produced at different sonication amplitudes or power outputs were uniform with similar morphologies, typically spheres. Microparticle size decreased with sonicator energy output from 120 µ m to 12 µ m as the amplitude changed from 40 % to 70 %. The encapsulation efficiency at amplitude levels of 50 %, 60 % and 70 % was between 70 % and 80 %. However, the encapsulation efficiency recorded at the 40 % setting was much lower, around 40 %. The release profiles of those microparticles were studied at different pH. There was a slight leakage from the microparticles at low pH. Above pH 7, total release was achieved within 2 hours. The results of this research confirm that the microparticles could encapsulate lactase as part of a treatment of lactose intolerance. / Thesis (M.App.Sc.)--School of Chemical Engineering, 2005.
