NIH awards LIAI major grant to test safety of new smallpox treatment
Date:5/8/2008

omised, including infants and the aged, cannot use the current vaccine, Dr. Kronenberg said. It is estimated that as much as 10 percent of the U.S. population should not receive the vaccine.

Additionally, if there were a smallpox outbreak, there would be a certain time lapse before people could receive the vaccine. In general, vaccines are preventive, said Dr. Crotty. You must receive the vaccine before you are infected or sick. Otherwise, it wont do you any good.

However, unlike the vaccine, the anti-H3 antibody would provide immediate treatment, even if the person had already been exposed. It would work similar to how an antibiotic treats and for a short time protects against a bacterial infection, said Dr. Kronenberg. This could be very important should people become infected before they have a chance to be vaccinated.
