Cooperation to create a new tuberculosis vaccine
... DNA vaccines deliver genetic information directly into
the cells of the vaccinated person, which enables the cells to produce the most appropriate and efficacious vaccine via the safest possible application method. DNA vaccines induce a distinct type of immune response that cannot be attained by traditio...
Protein protecting brain from toxins also blocks some chemotherapy from reaching tumors
