The use of adjuvants has also been considered for avoiding the potential undesired effects of coronavirus vaccination. Adjuvants are substances that potentiate and modify the immunogenicity and protection efficacy of the vaccines . A group of researchers found that by using a chemical adjuvant (a delta inulin-based polysaccharide), lung immunopathology previously observed in mice after SARS challenge experiments were no longer observed . It was hypothesized that the adjuvant helped to avoid an exacerbated Th2-polarized response after challenge causative of the adverse effects. This is a case where an adjuvant not only enhanced vaccine-induced protection but also helped to minimize adverse effects due to coronavirus vaccination.
Yes, so which vaccine candidates use adjuvants? Do we know?
