Sequential immunization is one of the special means to solve the shortage of vaccines, respond to SARS-CoV-2 variants and improve the efficacy of vaccines in the current pandemic period. This article mainly reviewed five sequential immunization strategies using the vaccines authorized by World Health Organization: priming with inactivated vaccine and boosting with recombinant protein vaccine, vector vaccine or mRNA vaccine;priming with vector vaccine and boosting with mRNA vaccine;prime-boost immunization with mRNA vaccines produced by different manufactures. Results of the related studies showed that heterologous sequential immunization strategies were safe and effective, and higher immunogenicity and efficacy could be achieved by sequential immunization. In addition, sequential immunization could provide certain protective effects against SARS-CoV-2 variants.

The mRNA-based vaccine technology is gradually developed as one of the new vaccine technologies in recent years. The technology is becoming more mature in terms of its stability and efficient delivery. Antigens encoded by mRNA vaccines are expressed in the cytoplasm and can induce the activation of both B cell responses and T cell cytotoxicity against infectious pathogens. In addition, the simple production process of synthetic mRNA vaccines can facilitate rapid response to emerging infectious diseases such as 2019-nCoV infection. In order to understand the current status of mRNA vaccine research and development for infectious diseases as well as providing reference for the development of clinically applicable mRNA vaccine against 2019-nCoV pandemic, this paper mainly reviewed the structural characteristics, advantages and challenges of mRNA vaccines and the current situation of vaccine research application in infectious diseases.

Objective: To investigate the mechanism of Jinzhen Oral Liquid (JOL) for prevention COVID-19 through network pharmacology and molecular docking technology. Methods: The protein targets related to COVID-19 were searched by literature mining and retrieving in DisGeNET, OMIM, KEGG and UniProt databases. With the aid of Traditional Chinese Medicine Network Pharmacology Intelligent Information Platform (TCMN) searching JOL chemical components and targets, the "herb-compound-target network" was constructed using Cytoscape-3.2.1 software to predict the main active ingredients and action targets of JOL in the treatment of COVID-19. The crystal structure of novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) 3CL hydrolase (3CLpro) and angiotensin converting enzyme II (ACE2) was retrieved from the RCSB PDB database, and the active compounds were docked with the two proteins by using AutoDock Vina software. Results: The herb-compound-target network contained 75 compounds including isoglabrolide, peimisine, and sennoside B, etc., which are from the three medicinal materials of Glycyrrhiza uralensis, Rheum officinale, and Fritillaria ussuriensis, and 28 targets including mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), Janus kinase 3 (JAK3) and mitogen-activated protein kinase 1 (MEK1). Furthermore, nine key compounds (isoglabrolide, glabrolide, ebeiedinone, desoxo- glabrolid-acetate, peimisine, verticinone, imperialine, ussuriedinone and euchrenone A5) and 10 potential targets (mTOR, JAK3, ACE2, TNFA, AKT2, PIK3CA, MEK1, BRD2, ACE and ANPEP) of JOL were predicted for treating COVID-19 by network characteristic analysis. The molecular docking results showed that some core compounds of JOL had a certain degree of affinity for 3CLpro and ACE2. Conclusion: JOL may inhibit the occurrence and development of cytokine storm in COVID-19 by regulating the expression of Brd2, CD13, and ACE2 and interfering with the PI3K/Akt, Jak-STAT, TNF and MAPK signaling pathways, and inhibit virus replication by binding with 3CLpro, thus exerting a preventive or therapeutic effect on COVID-19.

Objective: To explore the mechanism of Yinqiao Jiedu Soft Capsules in the treatment of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Methods: The interactions between 1 418 compounds of Yinqiao Jiedu Soft Capsules and 48 inflammatory target proteins related to COVID-19 were analyzed by molecule docking. The drug-target network was established to clarify the active compounds and potential targets. Results: The network analysis suggested 50 active compounds of Yinqiao Jiedu Soft Capsules, which were mainly flavonoids and triterpenoids, and 37 potential targets, mainly including MTOR, JAK3, ACE, ACE2, PIK3CA, TNF, AKT2, and MAP2K1. The results of molecular docking exhibited that forsythiaside and vitexin 2″-O-rhamnoside had good affinity with SARS-CoV-2 3CL hydrolase, and glycyrrhizic acid had good affinity with ACE2. Conclusion: The molecular mechanism of Yinqiao Jiedu Soft Capsules for COVID-19 may be involved in interfering SARS-CoV-2 replication and regulating the expression of inflammatory signaling pathway and the secretion of inflammatory cytokines.
