Scientists of the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) in Vladivostok have developed nanoparticles of immunostimulating complexes based on cucumber and seaweed to create a new generation of anti-infectious vaccines, RIA Novosti reported citing the university.
As Professor Nina Sanina, Professor of the Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology and Biotechnology of the School of Natural Sciences of the FEFU, told us, tubular immunostimulating complexes are safer than traditional vaccines.
“Specific properties of TI-complexes are given by biologically active compounds from marine hydrobionts.So, glycolipid MHDG from seaweed contains a high level of polyunsaturated fatty acids that have immunomodulating properties.” Ultra low doses of substances from cucumeria stimulate cellular and humoral immunity, “Sanina said.
With the help of research, it is planned to prevent dangerous diseases that are common in the Far East, for example tick-borne encephalitis, and global infections: influenza and others. The results of the work are published in the international scientific journal BioMed Research International.
Cucumaria is a genus of echinoderms from the class of holothurians, is used for food, has a number of beneficial properties. On the territory of Russia lives in Primorye, on Sakhalin.
