In recent years, numerous studies have demonstrated the outstanding abilities of mRNA to elicit potent immune responses against pathogens, making it a viable new platform for vaccine development (reviewed in Weissman, Expert Rev Vaccines 14:265-281, 2015; Sahin et al., Nat Rev Drug Discov 13:759-780, 2014). The incorporation of modified nucleosides in mRNA has many advantages and is currently undergoing a renaissance in the field of therapeutic protein delivery. Its use in a vaccine against infectious diseases has only begun to be described, but offers advantages for the generation of potent and long-lived antibody responses. FPLC purification and substitution of modified nucleosides in the mRNA make it non-inflammatory and highly translatable (Kariko et al., Immunity 23:165-175, 2005; Kariko et al., Mol Ther 16:1833-1840, 2008; Kariko et al., Nucleic Acids Research 39:e142, 2011) that are crucial features for therapeutic relevance. Formulation of the mRNA in lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) protects it from degradation enabling high levels of protein production for extended periods of time (Pardi et al., J Control Release, 2015). Here, we describe a simple vaccination method using LNP-encapsulated 1-methylpseudouridine-containing FPLC purified mRNA in mice. Furthermore, we describe the evaluation of antigen-specific T and B cell responses elicited by this vaccine format.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 18. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 31 January 2023.
All research outputs
of 23,390,392 outputs
Outputs from Methods in molecular biology
of 13,329 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 423,282 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Methods in molecular biology
of 1,074 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 23,390,392 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 92nd percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 13,329 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.4. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 98% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 423,282 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 90% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1,074 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% of its contemporaries.
