There's a reason "flu season" has earned its miserable prominence: When the flu is severe, it's difficult to avoid.
Animal diseases pose significant threats to health and food security. Here are nine things to know about animal vaccine development according to three Kansas State University scientists involved in vaccine research.
Particulate vaccine delivery systems may help protect against infectious disease outbreaks and bioterror threats
Most traditional vaccines have safety and efficacy issues, whereas particulate vaccine delivery systems—which utilize nano- or micro-particulate carriers to protect and deliver antigens—are efficient, stable, include ...
Millions of people - particularly infants in underdeveloped countries—suffer from the serious life threatening illnesses of meningitis, pneumonia and influenza. These are due to infection by microbes such as N. meninigitidis, ...
Leiden researchers have carried out successful tests using a new method of packaging a cancer vaccine in nanoparticles. The new vaccine has induced a strong immune reaction in mice. The researchers believe that this method ...
A three-dimensional 'map' of a critical protein that malaria parasites use to invade human red blood cells could lead to a vaccine countering the most widespread species of the parasite.
With use of synthetic opioid "designer drugs" on the rise, scientists from The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have a new strategy to curb addiction and even prevent fatal overdoses.
Research into disease prevention on British dairy farms has revealed a variation in how vaccination strategies are implemented by farmers and vets.
Scientists at the Universities of York and Torino have used mathematics as a tool to provide precise details of the structure of protein nanoparticles, potentially making them more useful in vaccine design.
An interdisciplinary team of Oxford University researchers has devised a new technique to speed up the development of novel vaccines.
