Virus-like particles (VLPs) bear high structural resemblance to viruses, though completely non-infectious in nature due to the absence of viral genetic material. Despite lacking DNA material, VLPs retain key immunological characteristics of viruses, including particulate structures; repetitive surfaces; and capability to induce innate immunity by activating molecular-pattern pathogen-associated recognition receptors. Technological advancements in vaccine development are fuelling demand for VLPs. VLPs are rapidly emerging as a promising vaccine technology to develop therapies capable of delivering long-lasting and more effective protection against infectious diseases.
