Enhanced stability of foot-and-mouth disease vaccine antigens with a novel formulation

Jing Li, Rong Zhang, Huiqing Yang & Yanming Wei
The structural instability of inactivated Foot-and-mouth disease virus antigen hinders the development of vaccine industry. The use of an inexpensive, biocompatible formulation to slow down the degradation of antigen would address the problem. Here, phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) was showed to be effective in stabilizing 146S and hence determined as basic solution buffer. Excipients such as trehalose, sucrose, arginine, cysteine, calcium chloride, BSA and ascorbic acid were found to protect 146S from massive structural breakdown. Using...
