• augment
  • Adjuvants in immunology are often used to modify or augment the effects of a vaccine by stimulating the immune system to respond to the vaccine more vigorously, and thus providing increased immunity to a particular disease . (wikipedia.org)
  • There are many adjuvants, some of which are inorganic (such as alum ), that also carry the potential to augment immunogenicity . (wikipedia.org)
  • bacterial
  • Adjuvants accomplish this task by mimicking specific sets of evolutionarily conserved molecules, so called PAMPs , which include liposomes , lipopolysaccharide (LPS), molecular cages for antigen , components of bacterial cell walls , and endocytosed nucleic acids such as double-stranded RNA ( dsRNA ), single-stranded DNA ( ssDNA ), and unmethylated CpG dinucleotide-containing DNA .

  • Inhibitors of bacterial efflux pumps as adjuvants in antibiotic treatments and diagnostic tools for detection of resistance by efflux. (uclouvain.be)
  • greatly
  • OBJECTIVES: Adjuvant endocrine therapy for early-stage breast cancer has greatly reduced the morbidity and mortality associated with breast cancer recurrence. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Because immune systems have evolved to recognize these specific antigenic moieties , the presence of an adjuvant in conjunction with the vaccine can greatly increase the innate immune response to the antigen by augmenting the activities of dendritic cells (DCs), lymphocytes , and macrophages by mimicking a natural infection .
