For the application of oral vaccination, biodegradable protein carriers are required. This study optimizes a powder processing route to increase the protein loading on β-tricalcium phosphate powder to be used as protein carrier. Linear correlation between apparent external surface area of the powder and adsorption efficiency is observed. Dendritic cell uptake showed the biocompatibility of the system to be capable as antigen carrier to these cells.
