Microbial threat levels physiologically correlate with the robustness of resulting immune responses (blue line). Threat evaluation could be harnessed to skew this correlation (red line) to improve vaccine efficiency. equation image low threat stimulus (e.g., dead microbes), equation image high threat stimulus (e.g., viable microbes), and equation image modified low threat stimulus (e.g., killed microbes + vita-PAMPs).
