Needle-free vaccination

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.

New method for HIV vaccination?

Scientists have developed a possible way to immunise animals against HIV using the common cold virus.

Cancer vaccine implant success in mice

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.

Rabies vaccine protects monkeys against HIV

A vaccine based on the one used to prevent rabies can be used to protect against the monkey form of HIV (SIV), a new study has found.

Leukaemia vaccine ready for patients

A new vaccine which successfully treated mice with leukaemia will undergo the first human trials this year.

HIV vaccine ready for human trials

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.

Weakened virus makes better vaccine

Rewriting the genetic code of the flu virus has helped to produce a stronger immune response, studies on mice have shown.

Flu patch

A vaccine in the form of a skin patch has proved more effective than a needle in mice.

Deadly rinderpest virus eradicated

The UN has just announced that rinderpest, a virus that used to cause deadly outbreaks in cattle, has been eradicated in the wild.

GM mouse immune to cancer

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.

Vaccine protects monkeys against SIV

A vaccine has been developed that protects monkeys from Simian Immunodeficiency Virus (SIV), the monkey equivalent of HIV.

Meningitis B vaccine one step closer

A study using mice has led scientists one step closer to developing a vaccine against the most common cause of bacterial meningitis, Meningococcus B.

World AIDS Day

It's 30 years since the first cases of HIV infection. During this time, says the website HIVaware, we've seen rapid change.

HIV vaccine boost

Scientists have created a vaccine that protects rhesus monkeys from infection by the simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), a relative of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

Nanoparticles boost vaccines

Scientists have developed nanoparticles that boost the effectiveness of vaccines in mice by mimicking part of the natural immune response.
