New DNA-base vaccine approach protects mice against anthrax
Researchers here have shown that mice injected with fragments of DNA from anthrax bacteria can be immunized against the disease. In traditional vaccine approaches, researchers have used live, weakened or dead pathogens - or proteins produced by the organisms - to produce an immune response. This new approach represents a new -- and perhaps, safer -- way to produce vaccines against highly contagious diseases.
