Group A streptococcus (GAS) is one of top ten pathogens, and diseases associated with GAS infection are severe public health problems which cause a large amount of death annually. Self-assembled nanoparticles (NPs) possessing antigenic peptides from M protein (the major virulent factor of GAS) can offer sustained releasing of antigenic..
