Strategies for Improving Immunogenicity: The Deliberate Association of MHC (HLA) Antigens with Other Molecules

  • A. R. Sanderson


Any effective, and general, way of augmenting the immunogenicity of an antigen would constitute a major advance in immunology. However, this worthwhile endeavour can be broken down into severel different, albeit interrelated, components.
