What are the potential roles of an adjuvant?

Reinforce the immune system:

  • Fasten the onset of immunity
  • Enhance the level of the short term response
  • Increase the duration of the vaccinal protection
  • Reduce the antigenic load in the vaccine
  • Reduce the vaccin dose
  • Orient the immune response (humoral/cellular)
  • Enhance the stability of the vaccine
