Immune responses from Au/Ni nanorods prepared by electrochemical deposition in alumina templates are evaluated in C57BL/6 mice. When the nanorods are bombarded into skin, they generate a strong CDS T-cell and antibody response. When pcDNA3 is bound to the Ni segment of the nanorod, it provides a strong immunostimulatory adjuvant effect to the antigen bound on the Au segment.
