Advances in mRNA Vaccines for Infectious Diseases

Front Immunol. 2019 Mar 27;10:594. doi: 10.3389/fimmu.2019.00594. eCollection 2019.


During the last two decades, there has been broad interest in RNA-based technologies for the development of prophylactic and therapeutic vaccines. Preclinical and clinical trials have shown that mRNA vaccines provide a safe and long-lasting immune response in animal models and humans. In this review, we summarize current research progress on mRNA vaccines, which have the potential to be quick-manufactured and to become powerful tools against infectious disease and we highlight the bright future of their design and applications.

Keywords: application; delivery; infectious disease; mRNA vaccine; mechanism.
