(Figure Presented) Special delivery: An effective group A streptococci vaccine is formed from a delivery device consisting of well-defined dendritic structures with nanoscale dimensions (see picture). The structures are designed to display multiple copies of the minimal B-cell epitopes, which were in the optimal conformation on the surface of the nanoparticles. The nanoparticles can be administered without the aid of an adjuvant.
