Modularization of a peptide antigen for presentation on a microbially-synthesized murine polyomavirus (MuPyV) virus-like particle (VLP) offers new alternatives for rapid and low-cost vaccine delivery at a global scale. Immunization with a modular MuPyV VLP presenting an antigenic element from group A streptococcus (GAS) induced high levels of antibodies against the element despite a strong pre-existing anti-carrier immune response. This study also demonstrated the possibility of modularizing the VLP to present up to 720 copies of the antigenic element.
