Title: USE OF A GROWTH HORMONE SECRETAGOGUE PEPTIDE AS A VACCINE ADJUVANT
Abstract:
The invention relates to the use of the peptide, GHRP-6, and a structural analog thereof as molecular adjuvants for vaccines. Along with other applications, said vaccines can be used in the prevention of diseases caused by infectious agents such as viruses, bacteria and ectoparasites that affect mammals, birds and aquatic organisms. The peptides, GHRP-6, and the analog thereof, A233, are effective as adjuvants when combined with a particular antigen, given that they strengthen the immune response against same.
