mRNA vaccine tackles deadly brain cancer in human trial

Glioblastoma is one of the most deadly cancers, with few treatment options available. Now, a small human clinical trial has demonstrated an mRNA vaccine that quickly rallies the immune system to fight off the tumors, with promising results.Continue Rea… Continue reading mRNA vaccine tackles deadly brain cancer in human trial

Simple oral spray prevents UTIs for up to nine years

An oral spray vaccine against recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) prevented the condition from returning for up to nine years in more than half of study participants, new research has shown. It offers a safe, effective method of UTI prevention an… Continue reading Simple oral spray prevents UTIs for up to nine years

New one-and-done vaccine protects against multiple coronaviruses

A single-shot vaccine that protects against multiple coronaviruses, including the one that causes COVID-19, has been developed. It erased all viral traces from the lungs of animal subjects, opening a pathway for a similar human vaccine.Continue Reading… Continue reading New one-and-done vaccine protects against multiple coronaviruses

Cancer vaccine for dogs almost doubles survival rates in clinical trial

The biggest tragedy of pet ownership is that they just don’t live long enough. Thankfully scientists are working on that, with a new cancer vaccine for dogs that almost doubles their survival rates in the face of certain types of the disease.Continue R… Continue reading Cancer vaccine for dogs almost doubles survival rates in clinical trial

What happened to the guy who had 217 COVID vaccinations

A man that police caught taking 217 doses of COVID vaccine has offered himself up to researchers for a study looking into what happens to the immune system after so many doses. The results offer surprising insight into these new mRNA vaccines.Continue … Continue reading What happened to the guy who had 217 COVID vaccinations

Getting vaccines in different arms improves effectiveness, study finds

Researchers have found that getting a vaccine booster shot in a different arm from the one you got the first in may improve the body’s immune response up to four-fold. While they exclusively studied responses to the COVID-19 vaccine, they suspect this … Continue reading Getting vaccines in different arms improves effectiveness, study finds

Virus-mimicking DNA particles deliver vaccine without immune side effects

MIT researchers have delivered a type of vaccine called a particulate vaccine to mice using a virus-mimicking scaffold made from particles of DNA instead of the usual protein particles. It not only generated a robust immune response but avoided the off… Continue reading Virus-mimicking DNA particles deliver vaccine without immune side effects

Facial recognition app helps scientists identify rabies-vaccinated dogs

In regions where dogs often run loose, don’t wear tags and aren’t microchipped, it can be difficult for authorities to keep track of which ones have already been vaccinated against rabies. A new app could help, by identifying individual dogs via facial… Continue reading Facial recognition app helps scientists identify rabies-vaccinated dogs

Lax vax resulted in thousands more COVID deaths, UK-wide study shows

The largest study of its kind ever carried out in the UK has found that 7,180 of the 40,393 hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19 could have been avoided had the population been fully vaccinated.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Coron… Continue reading Lax vax resulted in thousands more COVID deaths, UK-wide study shows

Novel nasal COVID-19 vaccine offers longer, better immunity than jabs

Researchers have developed an intranasal COVID-19 vaccine that enhances the immune system’s response to the virus, providing longer-lasting, greater protection than vaccine injections, even against new and emerging variants. The novel vaccine candidate… Continue reading Novel nasal COVID-19 vaccine offers longer, better immunity than jabs
