Abstract

image

Immunoadjuvant porous silicon (PSi)-based nanovaccines are prepared by nanoprecipitation in a glass capillary microfluidics device. Vesicles, derived from cancer cell membranes encapsulating thermally oxidized PSi nanoparticles or PSi-polymer nanosystems binding a model antigen, are biocompatible over a wide range of concentrations, and show immunostimulant properties in human cells, promoting the expression of co-stimulatory signals and the secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines.
