Skin vaccination


Advanced skin vaccination with laser assisted epidermal immunization

Skin vaccination is an active immunization to induce immunity after exposure to an antigen on the pretreated skin instead of an injection.

In the past decade the skin has gained renewed attention as target for vaccinations due to its unique features such as

  • accessibility,
  • high abundance of skin-resident professional antigen presenting cells (APCs), and
  • efficient drainage through lymphatics to create
  • strong immune response
