The recombinant shuffled pig IL-2 gene and IL-6 gene plasmids with CpG motifs inserted were entrapped with chitosan nanoparticles (CNP) prepared by the ionic cross linkage method (CNP-VRIL2S-VRIL6C), and were then injected intramuscularly to inoculate hybrid swine which were co-immunized with the inactivated foot and mouth disease vaccine (FMDV). Blood was collected from the pigs on 7, 14, 28, 42, and 56 days post vaccination to detect immunoglobulin changes, specific antibodies, IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, and immune cells. The results showed that from 7 to 56 days after vaccination, the specific antibody, IgG, IgA and IgM significantly increased in the treated pigs in comparison with those of the control swine(P<0.05); the amounts of IL-2, IL-6, monocytes and lymphocytes were remarkably elevated in the blood of the treated group as compared with those of the control pigs. This suggests that CNP-VRIL2S-VRIL6C boosts the specific humoral and cellular immune responses of pigs to FMDV, implying that CNP-VRIL2S-VRIL6C could promote the resistance of the swine against FMD and is a putatively promising effective immunoadjuvant to facilitate the control of FMD in pigs.
