Amino-functionalized mesoporous silica nanoparticles have a high adsorption capacity for ovalbumin. Ovalbumin-bound nanoparticles are used as a delivery system in mice to test their efficacy. Immunization results in both cell-mediated and humoral immunity. The nanoparticles not only act as a protein carrier but also as an effective adjuvant. These results establish mesoporous silica nanoparticles as a viable vaccine delivery vehicle.
