Marshall, who won a Nobel Prize in 2005 for discovering Helicobacter caused stomach ulcers, said there was huge potential for edible vaccines
The research report Analyzing Edible Vaccines
details the revolutionary strides in the field of vaccine industry which is crucial in the human fight against diseases which were earlier only countered with traditional vaccination programs.
The researchers also detected antibodies in the feces of six of the people who had received the edible vaccine
The report concludes with a complete future outlook for edible vaccines
which will give a confident understanding of the reach of edible vaccines
into the future much beyond traditional vaccine delivery systems.
Later, Curtiss was a scientific advisor to a plant biotechnology company that employed Cardineau as a molecular biologist, and the two hit on the idea of genetically engineering plants to become edible vaccines
, mucosally delivered vaccines, intranasal vaccines, vaccine patches and vaccine chips are all under development, with the latter expected to be commercialized within the next several years.
GMOs could offer edible vaccines
for asthma or allergies, and pest resistant breeding corn.
These edible vaccines
could reportedly help some of the 15 million children who die each year from preventable diseases.
Biotech corporations have expanded on their scientific experiments with our fund by creating edible vaccines
and pharmaceutical crops, Over 400 genetically altered "functional foods" are in development by twenty biotech corporations from around the world.
The NRC report suggests that edible vaccines
, which are currently being developed, could also be used by soldiers in the field to fend off common ailments or diarrhea caused by intestinal viruses.
GMO plants with specific consumer benefits that are in the pipeline include: 1) plants containing edible vaccines
Current development is focused not only on high-value therapeutic proteins, edible vaccines
, antibodies for human immunotherapy, but also on industrial applications like production of enzymes for food and feed additives, engineering plants in order to produce specially designed seed which can be used as a delivery vehicle for industrial enzymes [3-18].
The winged bean collection has been important in our preliminary studies, which we hope will allow us to design edible vaccines
in the future.
Melbourne, July 29 (ANI): Australian Nobel-winning scientist Barry Marshall is trying to figure out how to make edible vaccines
are not only cheaper to produce, they don't need to be kept cool.
