[WHO] Brazzaville -Nine middle-income countries in Africa have agreed to work towards pooled procurement mechanisms by first sharing vital information on their vaccine purchasing practices, including the prices they pay and their suppliers. Sharing information and ultimately pooling their orders will better leverage their individual purchasing power and thus strengthen their vaccine security and increase their access to affordable life-saving vaccines.

Publication date: January 2020Source: Microbial Pathogenesis, Volume 138Author(s): Chamith Hewawaduge, Amal Senevirathne, John Hwa LeeAbstractIn the present study, the importance of sodium bicarbonate antacid as an agent for an orally delivered attenuated Salmonella strain secreting Brucella antigens Cu–Zn superoxide dismutase (SodC) and outer membrane protein 19 (Omp19) as a live vaccine candidate against Brucella infection was investigated. First, Brucella antigens SodC and Omp19 were cloned into a prokaryotic constitutive expression vector, pJHL65. Then secretion of proteins was verified after transformation into ...

This study presents the first evidence that the transcriptional regulator VjbR has important function in B. canis. In addition, according to its reduced virulence and the protective immunity it induces in mice, it can be a potential live attenuated vaccine against B. canis.

Dupont-GillainAbstractAluminum hydroxide (AH) salts are widely used as vaccine adjuvants and controlling antigen-AH interactions is a key challenge in vaccine formulation. In a previous work, we have developed a quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) platform, based on stable AH-coated sensors, to explore the mechanisms of model antigen adsorption. The QCM study of bovine serum albumin (BSA) adsorption at different pH and ionic strength (I) values showed that prote...

Silva-JrAbstractSchistosomes express a variety of aspartyl proteases (APs) with distinct roles in the helminth pathophysiology, among which degradation of host haemoglobin is key, since it is the main amino acid source for these parasites. A cathepsin D-like AP from Schistosoma mansoni (SmCD1) has been used as a model enzyme for vaccine and drug development studies in schistosomes and yet a reliable expression system for readily producing the recom...

TAUNTON (CBS) – Flu season is here, and for a Taunton family with two babies battling a rare disease, the months are particularly stressful. From the outside, they appear picture-perfect: Amanda and Billy Bettuchi and their three beautiful kids. But you can’t tell a whole health story just by looking. “It’s Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID), so Shane was born with no immune system at all. They have to go through chemo first for 10 days and then they get the bone marrow transplant after that at three months old,” mom Amanda (Acorn) Bettuchi explained. Sweet Shane, not even a year old, is ...
