Method to Produce Immunostimulatory Proteins and Tether Them to the Membrane of Enveloped Virus Vaccines
This technology is a method to produce immunostimulatory cytokine proteins and tether them to the membrane of enveloped virus vaccines produced in cell culture in order to improve vaccine efficacy. Background & Unmet Need: The successful elimination of pathogens following immunization depends on the ability of the host's immune system to become...

Gene for Chicken Interleukin 15...
Our researchers have cloned chicken IL-15 and related avian lymphokines for use as avian vaccine adjuvants. The inventors have shown experimentally that chicken IL-15 can enhance vaccine effectiveness in chickens. Background & Unmet Need: Most chickens produced in developed countries for consumption and egg-laying (at least 10 billion per year)...
