Transgenic plants as vaccine production systems represent an economical, simple andhighly effective alternative to fermentation-based production systems. There are two differentstrategies for transgene expression in plants. (1) Stable genomic integration using genes encodingforeign antigens. (2) Transient expression using viral vectors. The vaccines produced by transgenicplants retain native immunongenic properties. The edible vaccines' can stimulate humoral andmucosal immunonresponses.
