Biography
Vaccination represents one of our greatest weapons against infectious diseases. However, there is a need for optimizing vaccine potency, safeness and stability. Subunit vaccines have proven to be more stable and safer than live attenuated vaccines, but they lack the potency to evoke a correct immune response. Nanoparticles have been used in biomedical applications due to certain properties like shape, surface reactivity, and size. Among them, inorganic nanoparticles like those of mesoporous silica have gained interest due to their biocompatibility, absorbance/encapsulation capability, and easiness of functionalization. We designed a new carrier composed of mesoporous silica particles known as SBA-15 (Santa Barbara Amorphous-15), modied with a surface lipid bilayer (SLB) that displays an amphipathic lipid with adjuvant capabilities. The particles were synthesized by condensation of tetra-ethyl-ortho silicate in the presence of Pluronic 123. Phosphatidylinositol mannosides (PIMs), which are known to be TLR-2 agonists from mycobacteria, were isolated and assembled within SLB. Cationization of SBA-15 particles with amine groups was performed in order to promote the electrostatic interaction between silica and the negative phospholipid bilayers. Electron microscopy, raman spectroscopy, zeta potential, and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) analyses were used to characterize the as-obtained particles, and their interaction with THP-1 macrophages was assessed through confocal and DIC microscopy. The biomimetic colloids, named PIM@SBA-15, showed biocompatibility towards human broblasts and were found to colocalize with Toll-like receptor TLR-2 upon their incubation with THP1-derived macrophages. Furthermore, the particles induced the formation of pseudopods and were internalized into phagocytic cells. In all, these data suggest the usefulness of PIM@SBA-15 particles to better comprehend the interactions between immune cells and PIMs.
