Vaccines for Obesity

Obesity causes many problems in humans, but the treatment options for obesity are very limited. It is widely accepted that a combination of dieting and physical activity is the most effective way of reducing obesity. However, these methods are highly dependent on the motivation of individual subjects. Recent studies have shown that therapeutic vaccines may be new targets for the development of anti-obesity medication.

The therapeutic vaccines could treat alternatively the obesity by suppressing the appetite-stimulating hormone and blocking absorption of nutrients. Active vaccination against target molecules is another therapeutic vaccine approach. The recombinant virus-like particle (VLP) has a similar structure to viruses but lacks sufficient genetic information to replicate. Thus, this type of vaccine is less dangerous compared with live virus vaccines.
