Annotation
"induce antibody formation in people not responsive to polysaccharide alone"; semisynthetic vaccines; coord NIM with specific vaccine (IM)
Scope Note
Semisynthetic vaccines consisting of polysaccharide antigens from microorganisms attached to protein carrier molecules. The carrier protein is recognized by macrophages and T-cells thus enhancing immunity. Conjugate vaccines induce antibody formation in people not responsive to polysaccharide alone, induce higher levels of antibody, and show a booster response on repeated injection.
