Hello friends, this is Gary, a perseverance import and export trade manager. Wecome to back our channel. Let’s continue COVID-19 vaccines types, this time we talk about the Virus-like particles vaccines. Maybe you find, the substance looks like an inactivated vaccines substance. Yes, you are right, this is why called virus-like particles..
As we know the virus-cell can stimulate our body immune system to created Antibody, but if cultivated the virus, that will be hard and need much time, so the scientist and doctor think can create the same structure cell to stimulate the immune system. Unlike use, the virus corpses, this type of vaccines mechanism is to create a harmless and same structure cell. It can be presented to the immune system in the same way as COVID-19 infection, effectively inducing the immune system response and produce antibody. OK let check our five-star evaluations.
The same as the inactivated vaccines, this type of vaccine technical also high maturity. have success vaccine in the market like Hepatitis B, Cervical Cancer, so I give the Technology maturity, representative product and safety are full five stars.
But due to if one wants to find the same structure cell that is very hard, so the developments speed is slow. I give two starts. But if find the right way, this Production speed will be faster. Due to no need cultivate, only produce, like products industry products.
At transportation and storage item, virus-like particles same as inactivated vaccine, easy for story and transportation. So I give it 5 stars.
Let check the pros and cons
The first pros it can produce faster, and also no risk for illness, this also good for induced strong immunity response.
But as you can see the cons, need high technical requirement, not easy to find or create the same structure cell. And this also needs to strengthen immunity ability, the final cons for affected by antigen glycosylation.
OK this is VLP vaccines, but this type of vaccine is not easy, so right now only a few companies use this technique to produce, until right now, this VLP still in developing.
Ok, next time we talk about the Protein subunits vaccines, Finally. if you like our video, please click like to support us. See your next video.
