"There isn't a single solution for disease resistance in the field, which is part of the reason these findings are important," said Peck. "The concept of another layer of interaction between host and microbe provides an additional conceptual strategy for how resistance might be manipulated. Rather than trying to kill the bacteria, eliminating the recognition signals in the plant makes the bacteria fairly innocuous, giving the natural immune system more time to defend itself."
"Now it will be possible to evaluate individual epitopes for their ability to stimulate these immune responses for a protective vaccine" Moise said
...III reconstitution system, patients can prepare their treatment with fewer steps," said Ludwig Hantson, Ph D , president of Baxter BioScience. "This latest approval reflects Baxter's ongoing leadership in investing and bringing new and innovative therapies to the market that meet the evolving needs of the hemophilia community."
...continue to increase locally or globally and affect vaccine effectiveness and bacterial pathogenicity is unknown," the researchers conclude. "Continued monitoring of genotypic and phenotypic properties of B pertussis is required to better understand the effects of vaccination on the evolution of the organism."
