Researchers have developed a new pain-free method of vaccination which does not involve an injection. Using mice they have shown that it is possible to deliver a vaccine orally by combining it with protective friendly bacteria.
A study using mice has led scientists one step closer to developing a vaccine against the most common cause of bacterial meningitis, Meningococcus B.
Rewriting the genetic code of the flu virus has helped to produce a stronger immune response, studies on mice have shown.
This Sunday is World Hepatitis Awareness Day, with a theme of 'This is hepatitis. Know it. Confront it.
The hepatitis C virus infects in the region of 170 million people around the world and creates an increased risk of cirrhosis, liver failure and cancer.
A new vaccine which successfully treated mice with leukaemia will undergo the first human trials this year.
Studies in mice have uncovered the cause of a fatal side-effect of an experimental vaccine for a common childhood disease.
Scientists are closer to developing a vaccine against the superbug MRSA.
A cancer ‘vaccine' which can be implanted under the skin and instructs the body to attack tumour cells has proved successful in experiments with mice.
Scientists have developed nanoparticles that boost the effectiveness of vaccines in mice by mimicking part of the natural immune response.
Cancer tumours somehow escape the body's immune system, even when that immune system is primed by a vaccine designed to specifically target the cancer.
Animals research has led to vaccines against cervical cancer
Scientists have developed a possible way to immunise animals against HIV using the common cold virus.
It's 30 years since the first cases of HIV infection. During this time, says the website HIVaware, we've seen rapid change.
A vaccine in the form of a skin patch has proved more effective than a needle in mice.
Over 120 million people worldwide are chronically infected with Hepatitis C and most of them don’t know it.
Research in rats suggests that breast cancer patients should avoid even low levels of light in the bedroom.
Salmonella poisoning typically causes diarrhoea.
Using a deactivated form of HIV as a vaccine may be the best new treatment for fighting the HIV virus, concluded scientists after studying primate responses to the treatment.
