In this work, we report the development of a new thermal-sensitive hydrogel for intranasal vaccine delivery. This delivery system was formulated with a combination of the polymer Gantrez® AN119 and the surfactant Pluronic® F127 (PF127), with a high biocompatibility, biodegradability and immunoadjuvant propertie...

Abstract Vaccine implementation planning in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) often focuses on children without considering special adult populations. We adapted an economic model developed by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of vaccine acquisition strategies for Campylobacter-, ETEC-, Shigella-, and norovirus-associated gastroenteritis. We compared implementation costs with current medical management in the Peruvian armed forces, a special population of low- and middle-income (LMIC) adults with a high incidence of infectious gastroenteritis. Pathogen-specific ...
