In many cases, it is being found, vaccines work better if they take a chemical side-kick along, and researchers here from drug companies and universities mostly in Europe detail methods for assessing the activity of such adjuvant products. One goal of course is to inform fellow researchers, but another is to begin the process of standardizing adjuvant testing so that meaningful comparisons can be made. Among the topics are the preclinical development of ASO4, adjuvant activity on human cells in vitro, tracking dendritic cells in vivo, functional antibody assay, quantitative multi-parameter assays to measure the effect of adjuvants on human antigen-specific CD8 T-cell responses, determining the activity of mucosal adjuvants, and the adjuvant activity of cytokines.
