Novel freeze-dried DDA and TPGS liposomes are suitable for nasal delivery of vaccine
This study has shown that the novel liposomes have potential for development as a mucosal vaccine delivery system. Furthermore, the stability of the lyophilized liposomes offers potential additional benefits in terms of thermal stability over liquid formats. Graphical abstract
A Midwestern hospital introduced a policy mandating the flu vaccine for its employees. Daily Mail Online spoke to Sharon Beaulieu, who refused the shot on principle and was fired.
Abstract Cholera remains a feared, aggressive, infectious and lethal disease today, despite several decades of intense research, concerted public health modalities designed to prevent, and to control outbreaks, availability of efficacious vaccines aimed at containing its contagious spread, and effective patient-centered medical interventions for reducing morbidity and mortality. Despite these advances, cholera still strikes communities around the world, especially in countries and regions of the globe where medical and nursing care cannot be as effectively proffered to the population at risk as in First World econ...
Abstract Gene network analysis was performed based on published literature describing genes that are possibly interconnected with cholera vaccine responses in vitro in cell culture and in vivo in human patient punch biopsies as well as DNA extracted from blood. These studies produced divergent results. The differences should be replicated and studied further. Included in such studies, patient ethnicities, states of stress, nutrition, and health, as well as the precise characteristics of the various cholera vaccines and modes of delivery need to be considered as well.

Women want more support and advice from health professionals about flu and whooping cough vaccination in pregnancy, according to a new survey of recent mothers and pregnant women.
Researchers here demonstrate that mice with lower levels of PPAR-γ exhibited reduced atrophy of the thymus with age, and as a consequence also exhibit improved measures of immune function. The thymus is where T cells mature in the final stages of their creation before being released to duties in the body. Unfortunately it has evolved to atrophy, its active tissue replaced with fat tissue. This initially occurs immediately following childhood in a process called thymic involution, and then the remaining functional thymic tissue steadily declines over the course of later life. This places an ever-lower limit on the sup...
[The Conversation Africa] HIV remains one of the continent's most intractable health challenges. Tremendous progress is being made to understand the virus, the immune mechanisms that contribute to its control and for new antiretroviral drugs and vaccines to be developed to treat and prevent HIV.
(Natural News) Have you ever thought about the violation of human rights and medical ethics found in the vaccine industry’s pushing of mandatory vaccines for everyone? The fact that the industry wants to inject you and your children without disclosing the risks of vaccines — which include permanent, serious damage as well as death —...
The proportion of GPs and other primary care healthcare workers receiving the flu vaccine has climbed 18% this year as the NHS gears up for a tough winter.
