Hey Kolean, thanks for reply; I thought though that you could use some pure peptides with some adjuvants as a vaccine. I was thinking about synthetic peptides. Such that the delivery system contains no cells but just the peptide antigen. Isn't that possible? Additionally, just seen that as a rule, s...
